A blizzard will threaten to bring travel to a standstill from Washington, D.C., to New York City as well as across the southern Appalachians by the weekend. Snow and wind will brush southern New England.

Winds and the rate of snowfall will increase as the storm strengthens. Thunder and lightning could accompany the heavy snow in some locations. An all-out blizzard will unfold from northern Virginia to southwestern Connecticut. Whiteout conditions will occur farther west from south-central Pennsylvania to part of western North Carolina.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency at 8 a.m. EST on Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016, to help channel state assistance to local communities fighting the storm. Other states were following suit in advance of the storm.

The storm is likely to shut down some highways and could cause some airports to close. Ahead of the storm, Delta Air Lines announced travel waivers for flights through Jan. 24 at 19 different airports in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic region.

The potential exists for a major snowstorm to affect more than 50 million people across the eastern United States at the end of the week.

Areas from near Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia, New York City and Boston could receive heavy snow from the storm.

The exact track of the storm will hold the key as to which areas in mid-Atlantic and New England are hit with heavy snow, dangerous highway travel and scores of flight delays and cancellations during Friday into Saturday.

Unlike most storms so far this winter, this system will have enough cold air to produce snow and disruptions to daily activities in some areas of the East that have seen little thus far.

Roads in some areas will turn from wet to slushy, icy and snow-covered as temperatures plummet by 15 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit.

A storm is poised to bring the first snowfall of the season to parts of the Midwest, including Chicago and Milwaukee, this weekend.

Enough snow could fall to cause slippery travel in portions of Interstate 35, 75, 80 and I-90/94 in the Midwest.

The storm will produce a swath of snow from the northern Rockies on Thursday to the central Plains on Friday and the Upper Great Lakes region Friday night into Saturday.

Exactly where the swath of heaviest accumulating snow falls will depend on the track and strength of the storm.
