A major, travel-disrupting storm is unleashing snow and ice from Tennessee to North Carolina and Virginia.

AccuWeather meteorologists say the heaviest snowfall with this storm is expected from the southern Appalachians into the western Piedmont of North Carolina and southern Virginia.

Snowfall amounts of 12-18 inches are expected, especially in the mountains of North Carolina with an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 24 inches.

Travel will likely be completely halted in these regions until roads have been cleared. Even though the worst of the storm will have passed by Monday, schools may be closed early this week due to poor road conditions.

Heavy, wet snow is causing tree limbs to sag and snap, which could cause property damage and power outages through Sunday.

Flight delays and cancellations are mounting across the eastern US due to the major winter storm with all American Airlines and Southwest Airlines flights out of Raleigh-Durham International Airport being canceled.

While the storm unloads heavy snow across the region's interior, rough surf is causing coastal flooding and some additional travel disruptions.
