The National Weather Service is warning of a large winter storm that will deliver snow in some regions and rain or freezing rain in others and cause driving difficulties along several interstates between now and Sunday.
From 6 to 12 inches of snow is forecast for the Lower/Middle Mississippi Valley and into the southern Ohio Valley.
The Illinois State Police are warning against traveling this weekend and even has some suggestions of what to do if you do stay home.
Accuweather says, “A long-duration winter storm is foreseen for parts of West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and North Carolina,” and warns of driving difficulties along Interstates 64 and 70, as well as I-81 from Maryland to Tennessee, and parts of I-95 in Virginia.
