ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
A massive storm spanning over 1,000 miles is expected to affect more than 110 million people across the Midwest and along the East Coast, AccuWeather said on Saturday.
The fast-moving snowstorm stretched from Missouri to Maine, dumping heavy snow, snarling air traffic and making roads treacherous for driving.
The heaviest accumulation was expected in central Pennsylvania, New York state and interior New England, which could see between 4 and 8 inches of snow. Mountainous areas and parts of eastern Maine could be walloped by a foot of snow.
Utility companies across the region put extra crews on duty and made preparations for possible outages.
The snowstorm comes on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year during one of the shortest holiday buying seasons with only four weeks separating Thanksgiving and Christmas.
AccuWeather said the system was expected to move out of the area by Sunday, but slushy conditions could turn icy in frigid evening temperatures.
