Moderate to heavy snow is expected with Winter Storm Jayden. Unlike this storms predecessors, Winter Storms Gia, Harper, and Indra, Jayden will bring along a massive cold front that will stretch across the affected area and make it dangerous to be outdoors for long periods of time.

From the Plains to Midwest and on to the Eastern/Northeastern Coast early on next week, accumulations of snow accompanied by strong winds are expected. This will cause not only dangerous road conditions, but also small wind-swept ground flurries. While it may not be snowing, strong low winds of up to 25mph will likely cause white-out and blizzard-like conditions. Snow is even possible in the southern parts of the country as the Storm System moves its way east.
