A slow-moving winter storm is making its way across the Midwest before turning up along the Mid-Atlantic towards New England, bringing over a foot of snow in some parts of the country.

The storm started in California, bringing rare snow to some parts of the state before heading out across the central plains. The system gained strength as it moved across the country, eventually dropping snow across Chicago and the Ohio Valley.

As of Sunday morning, Chicago had seen approximately seven inches of snow, according to Accuweather. Detroit and Cleveland had seen a little under six inches, with more coming across the day.

Sunday sees mixed precipitation, with rain and thunderstorms in the south before the storm heads north and turns to heavy snow across the northeast.

Snowfall will range from 6-12 inches of snow, with some states in the Northeast possibly seeing over a foot of accumulation.

The storm is expected to weaken over the Midwest on Sunday evening, and rain in the Southeast will head offshore by Monday morning.
