Transcript for Winter blast sweeps Midwest, Northeast
Now to that winter blast, one of the biggest snowstorms of the season making its way across the great Lakes now heading for the northeast leading to a messy commute for millions and heavy snow in places like Buffalo, Stephanie Ramos is there for us this morning. Good morning, Stephanie. Reporter: Robin, good here in Buffalo they're expecting about 8 to 10 inches of snow to fall, much more to the south. Take a look. This is what people are waking up to. Some really heavy snow, low visibility and high winds, it's really whipping around that snow, making it difficult for plows to keep these roads clean but this snow has been falling consistently here since 11:00 last night and it is the same storm system wreaking havoc across Michigan. Take a look. More than two dozen wrecks and spinout as cross Michigan. At least 600 schools have been closed in Detroit. The city there really trying to keep people home. And here in Buffalo and across this area there are some major travel concerns. Blizzard warnings are in effect in areas south of here, up through watertown, New York, up there and that lasts until Friday expecting to create messy whiteout condition. Careful on those roads. Now to ginger for the latest track and timing of this storm. Good morning to you, ginger. Hey there. I know everybody's headline was snow. I really want you to focus on wind from Boone, North Carolina, up to Utica, New York, high wind warnings for gusts up to 60 miles per hour. That could become not just dangerous but inhibit your day. On the roads in western new York, high-profile vehicles empty have been banned from highways because we could see 56 for oswego. Even for the airports here around the tri-state I'd check before to see if there are any delays.
