One of the many storms that have hit the Northwestern states this winter will pack enough of a punch and moisture to produce a swath of moderate snow from the northern Plains on Sunday and Sunday night, to the Great Lakes and the Ohio Valley on Monday and Monday night.

"The storm is likely to unload a swath of 1 to 6 inches of snow over much of the Midwest on Monday," according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Max Vido.

Chicago is likely to receive its first inch or more of snow since the middle of December.

Enough snow will fall from Huron, South Dakota, and Des Moines, Iowa, to Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, to cause travel delays and disruptions to daily activities on Monday.

A major nor'easter threatens to shut down travel due to heavy snow and strong winds from Washington, D.C., to New York City and Boston early next week as winter's revenge continues.

The snowstorm in the northeastern United States will follow a storm with snow and slippery travel in the South into Sunday and a storm set to bring snow and travel problems in the Midwest from Sunday night to Monday.

A storm will rapidly strengthen and track within a couple of hundred miles of the East coast of the U.S. spanning Monday night to Tuesday night. For many areas in the Northeast, this will likely be the biggest and most impactful storm of the winter.

At this time, it appears that areas from northwestern Virginia to northern Maryland, central and eastern Pennsylvania, northern New Jersey, central and southeastern New York state and a large part of New England stand an excellent chance of receiving 6 inches or more of snow from the storm.

Thunderstorms will soak the I-10 corridor from Texas to Louisiana through Saturday night, leading to potential travel disruptions and flooding

The storms follow heavy thunderstorms on Friday, which dumped nearly 2 inches of rain on Corpus Christi, Texas, and caused flooded roads in the downtown area.

The first half of the weekend will stay on the stormy side from Corpus Christi to Houston and Tyler, Texas.
