The storm is moving east over the Ohio Valley and is forecast to affect the central Appalachians and mid-Atlantic region before hitting Washington, D.C., said NWS.

  • The deadly, late winter storm began in Montana dumping heavy snow on the Midwestern U.S., causing hundreds of accidents on the highways, and moving east.
  • At least six people were killed in weather-related accidents, as of posting.
  • Dozens of additional towns and cities have declared snow emergencies.
  • Winter storm warnings were in effect in large portions of the Upper Midwest and the Mid-Atlantic states on Tuesday.
  • “The storm system impacting the Midwest will shift into the northeast U.S. on Wednesday, bringing a plethora of weather hazards. Heavy snow, especially in the central Appalachians and northern Mid-Atlantic, strong winds, coastal flooding and rough seas are a few of the weather hazards which may lead to dangerous travel conditions, localized power outages and property damage.” NWS said.
