Winter Storm Liam to Bring a 'Mess' of Snow, Ice, and Arctic Air

Hold on to your hats and scarves, because there's another winter storm in the works as we speak. Fresh off the heels of Monday's snow in the Plains and Midwest, Winter Storm Liam is expected to bring a "mess" of snow, sleet, ice, and freezing rain from the Plains into the Midwest and Northeast through Wednesday night, according to forecasters.

The storm is expected to bring snowy and icy travel to more than a dozen states, from Colorado all the way to Maine. This comes shortly after a deadly 70-vehicle car crash on the snow-covered roads of Iowa on Monday — how awful!

At the moment, Arctic air is moving southward as the snow continues to spread in the Plains and is expected to spread more into the Midwest and mid-Atlantic states as early as tonight.

Because of the "mess" this storm is expected to bring, there are several winter weather advisories for the threat of snow and storm warnings for the threat of heavy snow in effect across these regions. While modest accumulations of snow — less than 6 inches — are predicted for the Midwest, much heavier snowfall is expected this time around for parts of the Northeast. Some regions may even get more than 12 inches.

If you live in any of the aforementioned areas, be sure to tune into your local weather forecast to hear the latest updates. Exercise caution whenever you step outside or get on the road, and be sure to bundle up in the meantime.

Stay warm out there, everyone!
