in the heartland, with the month of march barrelling in like a lion, look at the map. From montana to virginia, 19 states under winter watches and warnings. Two bracing for blizzards. And the huge storm their call an alberta clipper is picking up speed as wed into this night. Abc's ginger zee is in the storm zone in minnesota. Reporter: It's march madness on the roads in minneapolis. Persistent plowing in north dakota. Tonight, a storm targets the twin cities, then joins forces with another storm from the south. Chicago gets it, tuesday into wednesday and the mid-atlantic, wednesday into thursday. It's been a winter full of snowy headlines. Blowing snow is really the problem here. We were there when the blizzard blitzed des moines. I was goggled up in boston. Heard thunder snow in topetopeka. And covered up in kansas city, twice. Epic images.
