LIVE: Heavy Snow Eyes Plains, Ice Builds in Arkansas

After a winter storm unleashed heavy snow across parts of the Plains, Midwest and Northeast Monday, another winter storm is gearing up to snarl plans Tuesday and Wednesday.

This storm will deepen the white stuff across more than two dozen states, resulting in power outages, slippery roadways and delayed or canceled air travel.

"The bulk of the storm will hit the central Rockies and Plains first on Tuesday, followed by the Midwest Tuesday night and then the Northeast late Tuesday night into Wednesday," AccuWeather.com Expert Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

Six inches or more of snow could fall over portions of Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Northeastern Pennsylvania to southern New Hampshire could receive more than a foot of snow.

On the edge of the heaviest amounts, a wintry mix will cause slick, icy roadways.
