Cross-Country Winter Storm Rolling Through Northeast U.S.

| Trending News

'Tis the season — for winter storms, that is.

A raging storm that has already swept through the Midwest is now making its way to the Northeast, The Weather Channel reports, and could put a dent in many people's travel plans along the way. Over 1,200 flights have been cancelled already. Snow is spreading throughout the region, and cold temperatures are expected to follow. The snow began Sunday night, falling over six inches in some places.

CBS News reports that the winter weather has already caused numerous car crashes, including a pileup in Michigan on Interstate 75. A plane also slide off the runway at Detroit Metro Airport during the storm. The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories for parts of the Great Lakes and the Northeast Monday.

Along with snow, the storm is also bringing freezing temperatures to the Midwest and Northeast, and some cities will see temperatures in the single digits during the middle of the week. Another swath of cold air may also sweep in over the weekend.
