Storm packing heavy snow bears down on US Midwest, Northeast
NEW YORK (REUTERS) - The United States Midwest and East Coast braced for another round of wintry weather on Saturday as a massive storm spanning more than 2,540km promised heavy snow, slick roads and travel delays.
Even before snow began piling up, airlines reported weather-related delays and cancellations, with major airports in Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, D.C., and Newark, New Jersey scrubbing dozens of flights, according to the Federal Aviation Administration and FlightStats.com.
The fast-moving snow storm will hit states from Missouri to Maine, with southeastern states drenched by steady rainfall.
The storm will "produce a pretty good swath of snow over about a 24 hour period," said Mr Brian Korty, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
