A storm that moved from the Pacific into British Columbia on Saturday will be affecting the eastern half of the U.S. the next two days. It has already brought widespread snow to the Canadian Rockies, Montana, and the Dakotas with amounts from 12 to 18 inches.  This evening the low pressure center was just south of Fargo, North Dakota, and by Tuesday evening the low is expected to be in the Ohio Valley. At rush hour on Wednesday the morning the storm should be located near Norfolk, Virginia.  Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories are in effect from the Dakotas to the mid-Atlantic coast.

Heavy snow will be the main feature of this storm, but freezing rain and sleet will be causing problems along the southern periphery of the storm track,
