Storm to bury Midwest in up to a foot of snow

A large winter storm system could impact more than a dozen states over the next couple of days.  
Nearly 40 million people are currently under some form of a winter weather alert.
Over a half dozen states, like Iowa and Wisconsin, could see 2 to 4 inches of snow today. A foot of snowfall is possible in at least three states.
New York is not expected to get any snow, but we are bracing for a rain storm of our own over New Year’s Eve.
