It is not yet known how the storm will behave, but according to one of the scenarios, from Monday to Wednesday, heavy snow will fall in northern Wisconsin, parts of Minnesota, northern Michigan, northern Indiana, partly in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York and Maryland. In another scenario, heavy rainfall is expected in the Midwest from Sunday to Monday. By Tuesday, the storm will move north into the Northeastern Inner States.
