Storm system threatening the North East with heavy snow, rain

A massive storm system that brought nearly a foot of snow to parts of the Midwest is now threatening millions of residents in the Northeast with heavy snow, heavy rain and high winds.

The winter storm brought 11 inches of snow across Kansas on Saturday, closing several roads in the region, including Interstate 70.

The snow was so heavy at some points that northwest Kansas saw up to 2 inches per hour.

More than 13 million Americans across 18 states from Arizona to Maine are currently under winter storm warnings. On Sunday, two low systems will merge, which are expected to bring heavy rain from the Northeast to the South along the East Coast.

Parts within the Northeast will begin to experience snow in the mid to late afternoon and continue through the morning.

The weather could affect Sunday afternoon’s NFL playoff game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Buffalo Bills at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York.

What starts as rain from parts of northern New Jersey to coastal Maine will change to snow Monday morning and afternoon.

Boston is expected to see 3 to 6 inches, and areas from Scranton, Pennsylvania, to Bangor, Maine, are likely to see between 6 and 12 inches, and even more in some spots, forecasts show.

Snow accumulation in parts of northern New Jersey will increase by 1 to 3 inches.

In the South, severe storms began moving through the Florida Panhandle toward the South Carolina coast Sunday morning and are expected to last until sunset. Much of the East Coast will also experience heavy rain.

The rain and snow will then move out into the Atlantic on Monday afternoon.

However, a new storm is brewing in the West, with winter weather advisories in effect for six states from Washington to Colorado.

Wind warnings are in effect for more than 6 million people, including California, where the NFL playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers is expected to take place on Sunday afternoon. Winds of up to 20 mph are possible when the game is played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Snow is moving into the Rocky Mountains, and winds are expected to be very gusty across the southwest – up to 65 mph in some places.

The wind will remain until Monday morning.
