"A major winter storm set to hit the East Coast on Tuesday and Wednesday is threatening to snarl millions of Thanksgiving travelers' holiday plans, forecasters said on Monday."
"The same storm that lashed New Mexico and the southern Plains with snow and ice over the weekend will spread heavy rain across the South before moving into the U.S. Northeast ahead of the Thursday holiday, the National Weather Service said.
The Appalachian Mountains, West Virginia, western Pennsylvania and northern New York could get 6 to 12 inches of snow on Wednesday before the storm moves into western Maine on Thursday, weather service meteorologist Dan Petersen said.
East of the snow front, the I-95 highway corridor from Boston to New York could receive 2 to 3-1/2 inches of rain, he said."
