The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning to start late Saturday night and last into late Sunday night for nearly the entire state.

New Jersey declared a state of emergency Sunday afternoon as forecasters predicted much of the region will get between 18 to 24 inches of snow. We can expect lesser amounts in swaths as we head further south: 8-12 inches for central Jersey, 6-8 inches slightly further south, and then 4-6 inches or 2-4 down the shore and in Southern Jersey, where more mixing and less snow is expected. A Winter Storm Warning for much of southeast Wisconsin runs until 6pm Sunday. Light to moderate snow should fall in the region for the rest of Monday.

"It's pushing eastward and it's starting to snow into the Mid-Atlantic up into the Northeast, and we do anticipate a pretty broad area of potentially heavy snows", Bob Oravec, a lead forecaster with the National Weather Service who is based in Baltimore, told The New York Times. The snow could be especially heavy across the southeastern portion of central Pennsylvania on Monday. Baker plans a storm update at 11 a.m. Monday.

Temperatures were expected to be in the upper 20s to lower 30s for New York City metro area. Travel disruptions will be extensive from the ground to the air as the storm coats roads and runways with fresh snow.

The Obama administration and a Democratic-held Congress swiftly proposed the almost $800 billion American Recovery and Relief Act. The former president has been nearly silent after leaving office. "It's just really hard to speculate about failure", he said .

De Blasio said earlier on Sunday that coronavirus-vaccination appointments scheduled for Monday had been postponed due to the impending storm, with a decision on Tuesday's appointments yet to be made.

Parts of North Carolina and Virginia had snowfall, as well. Near blizzard-like conditions were possible along the coast on Monday.

"It's a widespread area with 10 to 20 inches of snow coming", Hurley said.

Chief Meteorologist Tom Tasselmyer said it's going to be a tricky forecast because the West Coast storm will have to move across the country, transfer energy to the coast, and another storm will have to form and track over Maryland to bring snow.
