The winter storm that pummeled Chicago on Saturday was steamrolling toward the East Coast on Sunday, bringing with it possible blizzard conditions and up to two feet of snow to New York City. 

More than 100million people across the Midwest and Northeast face snowy conditions and freezing temperatures through Tuesday as Winter Storm Orlena blasts across the country. 

Weather warnings are in place across the country with gusts as high as 45 mph forecast in New York. Public schools and COVID-19 vaccination sites in NYC are set to close Monday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday.  

It is the same weather system responsible for dumping 15 inches of rain and more than 100 inches of snow over parts of California earlier this week. 

By Sunday morning half of a foot of snow had been recorded in Chicago, with flakes still falling; more than an inch had already fallen in DC - the city's first significant snowfall in two years. 

Meteorologists also expected heavy snow in Boston and Philadelphia as the storm worsens into a nor'easter.   

Monday is expected to see the worst of the weather for the Northeast, with the storm forecast to end Tuesday night, right in time for Groundhog Day. 

AccuWeather Chief Broadcast Meteorologist Bernie Rayno has already called the cold blast 'monumental'.

For those who are getting ready to shovel, the snow in Illinois was forecast to be the heavy and wet snow that is often called 'heart attack snow' because of how physically taxing it can be to shovel it. 

Meanwhile, 'travel could be dangerous due to the heavy wet snow and strong winds causing very low visibility and snow packed roads' with 'power outages possible,' according to the National Weather Service.

Winter storm watches and weather advisories were in effect across 20 states as of Saturday, ranging from parts of the Northern Plains and southern Great Lakes to the southern Appalachians, Mid-Atlantic states and New England, according to the National Weather Prediction Center.   

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Saturday directed state agencies to prepare 'all emergency response assets'.  

In Wisconsin, snow depths in some counties near Lake Michigan had reached more than 15 inches, and the snow was still falling.

'That's more snow than we've seen in a decade,' Chris Stumpf, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sullivan, Wisconsin, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Three to 5 inches of snow arrived in central Ohio by early Sunday, making for some slippery roads. Washington, D.C., and parts of Virginia had also received some snow, with up to 3 inches in some areas. By the afternoon, the snow was expected to reach Pennsylvania.

Climate crisis is what the Red Republicans ignore as a hoax, glad that Turd was kicked out of the Swamp House, but he left his Turd behind to further destroy the human race.
