Some parts of the country are experiencing a blast of winter weather that has caused chaos for travelers.

NBC News reported that the winter weather blamed for at least seven deaths across the country is now heading for the Northeast. Boston could possibly get a foot of snow, while Philadelphia is only forecasted for 5 inches.

The National Weather Service reported that heaviest of the snow and freezing rain will occur across the Northeast through Tuesday. Forecasters said this will occur in the “northernmost areas of New England.”

Throughout the Boston and coastal areas of Massachusetts, the area is expected to see up to six inches of snow. Areas further inland could get up to 11 inches. Areas in the southern Poconos and extreme northwest New Jersey could probably expect five inches.

New York City is expected to miss the worst part of the storm. The city is forecast to get one to three inches of snow through Monday night. Areas farther north of the city could see several more inches.

Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, the National Weather Service reported two big storms across the United States, one in the New England area and another making its presence in the western part of the country.

491 flights in and out of Denver, Colorado were cancelled and more than 700 flights were delayed. The NWS predicted the two big storms across the country, one in the New England area and another making its presence in the western part of the country.

This stubborn winter system caused problems for people who were returning home from their Thanksgiving holiday.
