Looking at two separate storms.
One storm will move across the Great Lakes and New England, while the other will begin from the Gulf of Mexico and move upward, according to Accuweather.com.
“If the two systems merge, the massive storm will drop “a swath of heavy snow and ice,” across the region, AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson noted.
Several inches to a foot (30 cm) of snow is likely for parts of North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, while an icy mix is forecast for parts of Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland.
The storm could “unload snow and a wintry mix across portions of the Ohio Valley, South, and Northeast,” said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
