Bodies of children found as deadly winter weather hits the US

The Weather Service predicted that 4 to 7 inches of snow would fall on the Twin Cities between 6 a.m. Saturday to 6 p.m. Sunday.

The Weather Channel predicted that snowfall will likely impact travel from the central Appalachians to upstate NY and parts of western and northern New England on Monday. Parts of New York, New Jersey and CT are under a winter storm watch starting Sunday morning.

In addition, areas closer to the coast, from New York City to Boston, could see rain changing to snow later in the day and overnight, the outlet reported.

The National Weather Service expects significant travel impacts across wide swaths of the US this weekend as the storm is chased by a second weather system.

Forecasters said a new storm was expected to bring several feet of mountain snow, rain and gusty winds to California through the weekend.

The same storm has been pummelling the US for days as it moves cross country, dumping heavy snow from parts of California to the northern Midwest and inundating other areas with rain.

Meanwhile, in the Midwest, more than 700 flights were delayed or canceled on Sunday at airports in Chicago, Denver and Minneapolis, USA Today reported.

Downed tree limbs and power outages are possible. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has placed the National Guard on standby, he said. Thunderstorms are possible along that front, but the system should be out of the Southeast by Sunday night, according to CNN meteorologist Madeline Scheinost.

Up to a foot of snow has been forecast for much of interior MA, with Boston projected to get between 3 and 6 inches.

Wind gusts could reach up to 45 miles per hour in Tennessee and 50 miles per hour in North Carolina, the NWS says.

That was added to a foot (30 centimeters) of snow that fell before Thanksgiving. That could cut down on snowfall totals but is making roads treacherous.

"Travel is HIGHLY DISCOURAGED after 10 a.m. for the Coastal Range/Shasta County", the weather service's Sacramento office warned.

Shasta County is located between Sacramento and the OR border.

"A powerful storm continues its eastward movement this weekend with heavy snow, powerful winds, and areas of wintry mix spreading across the Northern Tier", the weather service said in an advisory.

"No Wi-Fi, no electricity, so it's like we're back in the 1800s", Fabrice Vignati who was in Crestline - about 70 miles east of Los Angeles - told CNN affiliate KTLA.

The utility said it would be passing out firewood to affected residents with the help of authorities.

Sunday will be especially disruptive as millions of holiday travelers are expected to head home.

Due to delays and cancellations, Delta Airlines announced weather waivers for almost two dozen cities in the Northeast for Sunday and Monday, including airports in Boston and the NY area. Nearly 1.48 million people traveled by trains, buses and cruise ships, increasing last year's numbers by 1.4 percent.

Several airlines are offering waivers to customers caught in the winter storm. United Airlines is allowing customers flying to New England Sunday or Monday to reschedule their flights free of charge. Other cities in the American Airlines announcement include Boston, Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Toronto, Canada.
