A major storm system will continue to heavy snowfall and ice through tonight across the Northern and Central Plains, Great Lakes and Northeast. Heavy rain and flooding will impact portions of the central and southern United States through tonight. Severe weather will affect parts of the southeastern U.S.

Temperatures in NYC and surrounding areas plunged and a winter weather advisory is in effect for suburban counties north of New York City from Monday night through Tuesday morning as a wintry mix sweeps through the region.

A light wintry mix of sleet, snow and some freezing rain was sweeping through areas northwest of the city, and the wintry mix was expected to continue into Tuesday morning for a potentially slippery commute, according to forecasters. NYC got its own mix of ice pellets and rain Monday night and driving conditions for the morning commute are expected to make travel potentially dangerous.
