Large portion of U.S. awaits MONSTER winter storm

Large portion of U.S. awaits monster winter storm (by Barbara Kollmeyer)

MADRID (MarketWatch) -- A large swathe of the U.S. was braced Tuesday for what could be the biggest winter storm in 27 years, according to some forecasters. The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for portions of seven states, including, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin for Tuesday. A freezing rain advisory swept from New Mexico and Texas up through the northeastern U.S. states. The NWS said the storm could produce one or two feet of snow for a large portion of the central and northeastern states, and heavy freezing rain of a quarter inch or more to the south and east of the heavy snow area. Some forecasts were calling for 20 inches of snow in Chicago. In Missouri, a state of emergency was declared, and state offices were closed in affected counties in Kansas for Tuesday in preparation for the storm expected to last into Wednesday. In Illinois, a disaster declaration was issued for the entire state in advance of the storm.
