The winter is set to advance into March with a significant snow and ice system due to hit the Midwest and East Coast Sunday overnight into Monday.
Major airports across the region will likely be hit with a slew of cancellations and delays Monday, particularly in the Mid-Atlantic region and parts of the Midwest, reports the Weather Channel. Drivers can expect treacherous conditions on highways and roads on the Eastern seaboard.
Snow, sleet and freezing ice will advance east on Sunday, accumulating across parts of Texas, Arkansas, northern Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, and West Virginia and snow will make its way into the mid-Mississippi Valley and Ohio Valley. By Sunday afternoon, the snow will reach the Northeast corridor and continue for much of Monday.
The Midwest from Kansas to Ohio will see up to 6 inches of snow from Sunday into early Monday, while parts of the Mid-Atlantic from the Philadelphia metro area to northern Virginia will see more than 6 inches of snow. Commuting conditions into and out of New York City, Washington D.C. and Boston on Monday morning are expected to be perilous.
