Snowy storm kills 1 in Missouri, heads toward Northeast

New England was expected to receive up to 1 foot of snow in a fast-moving storm that will last through Sunday, National Weather Service officials said.

The weather service is forecasting 6 to 12 inches of snow through most of New York and all of New England, with potentially up to 14 inches of snow in Maine, weather service forecaster Bruce Terry told the Los Angeles Times.
 
New England is going to "be the jackpot area for this storm,” he said.

The wintry weather stretched over 1,000 miles on Saturday, hitting states from Missouri to Maine.

In Missouri, where Terry said some areas got up to 9 inches of snow, an 80-year-old man died Saturday morning after he skidded off a rural highway in the western part of the state, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

However, most other Midwestern states, such as Michigan and Indiana, got only about 4 inches of snow, Terry said.
 
“Snow increased as you go farther east,” Terry said.

Cities that “escaped" the storm were Washington and Baltimore, where there was only about one inch of snow, he said.

The storm will pass quickly through New England. “Tomorrow night the storm is out of the picture,” Terry said.

But even with no more snow, Terry said Monday would remain windy and cold in the Northeast.
