A massive storm marching across the nation Tuesday was promising heavy snow, crippling ice and torrential rain to more than 200 million Americans over the next few days.
“Parts of 39 of the 48 contiguous United States will be touched by the massive storm, including every state east of the Mississippi River,” AccuWeather meteorologist Faith Eherts said.
Wintry temperatures will translate to snow and ice across the northern tier from Minnesota to Maine, as far south as North Texas to North Carolina.
“Kansas City, Omaha, Des Moines, Minneapolis and Duluth could all receive several inches of snow,” said AccuWeather meteorologist Tyler Roys.
The Weather Channel warned that the Washington D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia metro areas will see accumulating snow to start before it changes to a mix of sleet, freezing rain and then rain. That could make the Wednesday morning commute in those cities hazardous.
Freezing rain and ice will be especially dangerous in the mountains of West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina, weather.com said, causing tree damage and scattered power outages. Lighter amounts of ice are forecast for portions of Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

On Monday, the storm aimed its fury on the southern Rockies. As much as a foot of snow fell in Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico.
In the South, several rounds of heavy, flooding rainfall and even some severe thunderstorms are expected Tuesday and Wednesday.
Up to a half foot of rain could swamp much of northern Mississippi, northern Alabama and Tennessee, where flood watches and warnings have been posted.
Summer will continue to pay an early visit to Florida on Tuesday as temperatures soar into the 80s. Several Florida cities set record highs Monday, including Vero Beach, which tied an all-time February record high of 89 degrees.
The unusual warmth is expected to continue in the Sunshine State for most of the week.
