Two weeks after severe winter storms hit the mid-South and Northeast, another wave of hazardous travel weather will sweep across large areas of the US.
On Tuesday, 6- to 12-inch snowfall with areas of 12-18 inches are expected from parts of Arizona to southern Minnesota, according to forecasters.
Further south, severe storms and tornadoes are possible from southern Illinois and Indiana to Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
A major storm system will move across the Plains to the Upper Great Lakes by Wednesday. Heavy snow, with some blizzard conditions, will accompany this storm on Tuesday. Meanwhile, this same storm will bring severe thunderstorms capable of damaging winds and a few tornadoes from Miss. and Ala. northward into the Ohio River Valley Tuesday afternoon and evening.
