After hammering California with rain and snow, a 'blockbuster' winter storm is taking aim on the East, where as much as 40 inches of snow could fall. After the storm rolls through, bitterly cold air straight from the Arctic will roar in, bringing below-freezing temperatures to 200 million Americans.
"Freezing rain, heavy snow, and heavy rain are expected in association with the storm system through the central and eastern U.S. over the next few days," the National Weather Service warned.
On Friday, the heaviest snow Friday will hit South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri and Iowa, AccuWeather said.
Then, the storm will wind up and roar into the Northeast and New England.
AccuWeather said 40 inches is possible in parts of northern New England, while close to 30 inches of snow may fall on parts of central and northern New York state and the northern tier of Pennsylvania. Snowfall rates could reach 2-3 inches per hour.
The storm "will be a blockbuster in terms of impact and dangerous conditions," said AccuWeather meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

I still remember the snow storm in Iowa in fall of 1960, which was the first time I had ever seen snow, as a new student arrival from India. Every thing was transformed into a winter wonderland with a foot of snow. One. Never forgets the first time of anything exciting :)
Best. Weatherman. Ever. Frankie MacDonald:
Unfortunately I don’t ski in sub-zero weather. I’ll have to blow off work Tuesday instead of Monday.
The leaders of the Women’s March will join the DC Councilman in blaming the J-E-W-S for manipulating the weather.
“Womens march is Saturday in DC”
Could you put me on your ping list?
The media has become so lazy and devoid of any original reporting or thought reporting on their own polls and weather is now their bread and butter, 2nd only to their 24/7 attacks on Trump.
Unfortunately DC is not forecast to get much.
They started doing that a few years ago, about a year before people started saying "last year had the most named storms ever seen ..."
What a bunch of BS. They act like we are all gonna die from the weather. Crazy.....
It was quite a storm here in NorCal yesterday. Winds to 90 mph were reported up buetaluma. I took our pup for a walk duei g a break and the wind was roaring in the trees. Later in the evening, it was an incredible gale shaking the house.
Which I have named Algore.
I laughed out loud at that!
don’t have to be anywhere either. Will call off tomorrow’s clients if things get big, but they are not supposed to until Sat Sun. Have lots of wood, food, have 5 library books, 5 library DVDs, Netflix, wine in fridge, Bowmore in the liquor cabinet. I am ready.
I’m surprised you could remember a storm with no name.
If we can remember a Horse With No Name, storms are easy.
We are dating ourselves!
Yes, and proud of it.
I like the name, but is your snow blower a useless POS...?
