Monster snowstorm to blanket more than half of US
25 cm are in the forecast for Washington, D.C., which finds itself in the storm's sights for Sunday. "We're going to see a significant snow event for the mid-Atlantic to start the year for 2019". Motorists found themselves stranded as snow-covered roads became impossible to pass.
By late morning Saturday, officials had reported almost 11 inches of snow at Lambert International Airport in St. Louis, where most flights were canceled or delayed.
They also said almost 300 vehicles had slid off roads across the state and more than 175 crashes had been reported by late Saturday morning.
Washington, where many federal government offices are closed due to the USA government shutdown, is expected to receive 15 cm to 20 cm of snow from this storm, according to the National Weather Service.
St. Louis had recorded 10.4 inches of snow by 12:30 p.m., with higher accumulations in other parts of Missouri.
Large sections of Missouri, Illinois and IN are under winter weather advisories, and hazardous travel conditions are expected through most of the weekend. If St. Louis gets 15 inches or more of snow - there's about a 10% chance - it would be the city's second-greatest snowstorm of all time.
Along with Washington and Baltimore, Philadelphia is predicted to get 1 to 2 inches of snow, and there is a possibility of light accumulation in NY along the storm's northern edge.
The storm was pretty much over by late afternoon when the Kansas City Chiefs hosted the Indianapolis Colts in an National Football League playoff game, but seats in Arrowhead Stadium were still covered in snow and fans tailgated under tents in the stadium parking lot.
Forecasters say heavier snow and higher amounts could fall in mountain areas north of Interstate 64, such as Charlottesville and Staunton, Virginia.
Much of the heart of Missouri is forecast to receive snow, ice or both throughout the night.
AccuWeather meteorologist Bill Deger said in a blog post: "In much of swath from Missouri to southern OH, this will heavy and wet and a strain to shovel". But it cited progress Saturday morning as crews worked to clear routes and bring "water and food to stranded motorists".
The Missouri Highway Patrol has advised drivers to stay off the roads if possible.
Some 250 flights were canceled in the U.S.as of Saturday morning.
At St. Louis Lambert International Airport, "a winter storm has forced dozens of cancellations across all airlines at STL".
