Some 75 million Americans in 33 states, from the Dakotas to Georgia to Maine, are under alert Saturday through Monday for a massive winter storm and chilling temperatures. At least 11 winter weather alerts and advisories are in effect, including a wind chill advisory for much of the Northeast, where wind chills -- what temperature it feels like -- were as low as minus 40 degrees F early Saturday.

A winter storm watch also is in effect from Arkansas to Pennsylvania for a much-anticipated winter storm that's already dumped more than a foot of snow across North Dakota and Iowa. As the storm heads southeast toward the mid-Mississippi states Saturday into Sunday, and then toward the Northeast Sunday into Monday, more snow, ice and rain are expected.

Three to 6 inches of snow is possible in parts of the South, with Atlanta having the potential to see its first measurable snowfall in 4 years. Six to 18 inches of snow is possible in the mountains of Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. The interior Northeast up through New England is expected to get hit with 6 to 18 inches of snow. Coastal areas of the Northeast, including Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City and Boston, could see up to 3 inches of snow, though that will likely get washed away as the snow changes to rain by early Monday.

Wind chills Sunday morning will be in the single digits from Philadelphia to New York City to Boston and dip below zero in northern New England. Strong, gusty winds are also a concern across a large swath of the South, with wind alerts in effect from Texas to the Carolinas, with the concern for isolated power outages and wind damage.. Dangerous road conditions, as well as power outages, are expected throughout the holiday weekend. The Interstate 95 corridor will likely see a wintry mix of rain, snow and ice Sunday into Monday.

4 states -- Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina & Virginia --declared states of emergency Friday ahead of the storm, while West Virginia declared a statewide "state of preparedness."...
