Itching for some winter weather? Winter Storm Cara is on its way to deliver snow and ice to at least 21 states.
“This is a complex system, and we have a lot going on with it,” says Domenica Davis, meteorologist at The Weather Channel.
It’s a slow-moving system that will take several days to make its way across the country, starting on Tuesday in the West and continuing through this Thursday and Friday. It is expected to create plenty of holiday travel havoc during this time.
Areas expected to see some snowfall through Sunday include the Rockies, the High Plains and the north central Midwest. This includes large portions of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa southern Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Cara will also likely bring the first significant ice storm of the season to parts of Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, the Texas panhandle and New Mexico.
Frigid Canadian air lurks behind the storm system, bringing much colder temperatures into this weekend and next week.
