The storm as a whole will be a long-duration event, and some areas could see winter weather impacts for more than 48 hours straight, according to the FOX Forecast Center.

There’s increasing potential that more than 8 inches of snow could fall in parts of the northern Plains and Upper Midwest, with significant ice accretions possible from Iowa to New York.

Heavy rain and flooding will be possible in the nation's heartland, and there is the threat of severe weather in parts of the southern Plains and lower Mississippi Valley by Wednesday.
