Midwestern states brace for winter storm to hit the region

They included a woman and her 14-year-old stepdaughter whose auto slid into the path of a semitrailer in Clinton, about 80 miles southeast of Kansas City, on Friday, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.

The Missouri Department of Transportation warned residents not to travel in the storm if it wasn't necessary.

The storm is dumping its heaviest snowfall on areas west of St. Louis, where about a foot and a half of snow was recorded, with more still falling on Saturday, Orrison said.

On Saturday, officials reported almost 11 inches of snow at Lambert International Airport in St. Louis, where most flights were canceled or delayed.

The University of Missouri men's basketball game at the University of SC was also canceled Saturday because of weather-related travel issues, according to the team's Twitter account.

Those who must travel are being urged to carry a winter storm survival kit in case of emergency.

The storm will gear up across central Colorado, then move east across the Plains.

There is about a 10 percent chance that St. Louis will get 15 inches or more of snow, according to the National Weather Service high-end forecast.

Macedonia Lawmakers Set Again To Debate Name Change Amid Uncertainty
Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said the move would "open the doors to the future, Macedonia's European future". Ethnic Albanians make up about a quarter of Macedonia's 2.1 million people.

The latest amounts of snowfall saw Cook, Nebraska experience 11.8 inches, Bridgetown, Illinois 10.5 inches and Amy and Scott State Lake in Kansas nine inches. It would be among the city's 10 greatest snowstorms - landing at the No. 2 spot - of all time if that happens.

The major airport hubs of Denver, St. Louis, Chicago and Cincinnati could expect long delays, directly impacted by snow from WS Gia.

The storm was expected to spread east with between 3in and 6in of snow expected in the Washington area, including parts of northern and central Maryland, by Sunday. Philadelphia is expected to receive a few inches of snow, but areas north of there are expected to be spared, Orrison said.

Snow is forecast for the Appalachian Mountains and the mid-Atlantic on Saturday evening and Sunday.

Bands of icy rain are forecast for areas farther south, including parts of Virginia and SC.

There is a small chance the southern Appalachians will get enough freezing rain and sleet to turn into an ice event Saturday into Sunday.

"So, by that time, most of the snow will have already fallen, but there will still be flurries through the beginning of the game", she said. The Southeast has seen abundant precipitation in December and January, and the additional rain could put a strain on already-high rivers.
