Rain will stretch from coastal areas in the Northeast to farther south where it will be accompanied by thunderstorms and strong wind gusts, the weather service said. Widespread freezing rain is expected during the first round of the storm Sunday morning through the evening. "Snow will last for several hours on Monday before dissipating into the late evening hours".

As of 12:30pm on Sunday, more than 500 flights were cancelled across the country, according to flight tracking site FlightAware.

A new storm system is expected to come ashore in California later Saturday, Brink said, bringing feet of snow to the California mountains and heavy rain to the coasts and valleys.

Aaron Reynolds, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Buffalo said the precipitation earlier on Sunday morning is "coming in, in the form of freezing rain, but as it runs into some colder air, it's going to turn over to snow and then some sleet mixed in with it too, especially as we go on, progress through the day".

"A cold front will be positioned from central OH, arcing eastward near the Appalachians, then south-southwestward into the Florida Panhandle", it said.

More updates will be provided Sunday night and Monday.

The situation was more severe in the northeastern part of the state.

In North Carolina, heavy snow with accumulations up to 6 inches is expected, according to the NWS, and some areas could see up to 12 inches of snow.

She added, high wind warnings and wind advisories cover 20 million people from New Mexico to Nebraska where winds could gust up to 85 miles per hour. Forecasters advise chains will be necessary to navigate roads in mountainous regions - though white-out conditions in some areas may make driving especially risky.

RG&E and NYSEG say that they have their teams ready to deal with potential damage to power lines from the storm. "Meanwhile, the Sierra Nevada could see snow measured in feet". The utility said the outage was storm related, after winds and snow-covered trees downed wires.

The storm will linger over the state through Tuesday, the weather service said.

Of special concern is Sunday, which is expected to be the busiest travel day ever for the U.S. airline industry, with an anticipated 3.1 million passengers, according to Airlines for America, an airline trade organization. That represents a 3.7% increase over previous year and an all-time record, according to the group's calculations.

There were also dozens of delays at airports in Chicago and Minneapolis.

Delta Airlines said weather could interrupt travel at airports in the uppermost Midwest on Saturday and the northeast on Sunday and Monday. American Airlines declared similar offers in Rapid City, S.D. Sections of the state were beneath a blizzard warning and could see as much as two feet of snow.
