A massive blizzard pummeled parts of the Midwest and it now has it sites set firmly on the Northeast — an area of the country that’s seen a parade of storms over the lest week. And if some of the snow totals in the Midwest — from Nebraska to Ohio — are and indication of what’s to come, it’s likely to be rough in the Northeast.

Pictures and reports coming out of the Midwest indicate that a large swath of Iowa, northern Illinois and northern Indiana saw a foot or more of snow. Below are some of the largest snowfall totals we could find, as of 10:30 p.m. CST.

• near La Porte, Indiana — 19.3″
• Aurora, Illinois — 16.5″
• Simonton Lake, Indiana — 16.3″
• Aurora, Illinois — 16.5″
• Hardwood Heights, Illinois — 16.1″
• Butler, Michigan — 16.0″
• DeKalb, Illinois — 16.0″
• Schoolcraft, Michigan — 15.0″
• near Wauseon, Ohio — 14.3″
• Chicago O’Hare International Airport — 14.2″
• Davenprt Municipal Airport, Iowa — 13.1″

Snow will continue for many of these areas, though the overnight hours, so expect snow totals to go up. Additionally, the snow will start to creep into places like New York City, Hartford, Connecticut, Providence, Rhode Island and Boston. Travel, especially up the I-95 corridor — north of New York City — will be extremely treacherous.
