MAJOR Winter Storm for the Northeast and the Ohio Valley

Hello everyone and good Tuesday evening! I have been watching for days the potential for a winter storm to hit the northeastern and southeastern United States late Wednesday night through early Saturday morning. This is a storm system moving out of the Gulf of Mexico then turning into a Nor’Easter as it heads up the coast. We still have some cold air in place for parts of the Ohio Valley to start the storm with some heavy accumulations of snow over southeastern Missouri up north through St Louis then over southern and central Illinois to northern Indiana. Here 3-6 inches of snow may fall with isolated heavier totals. Ice looks to be a big concern as well over parts of the southeast and northeastern United States. As the system picks up steam heavy snow should fall over a larger swath of the northeastern United States on Friday. Here is the latest snow and ice accumulation maps:
