Winter Storm Expected to Bring Snow and Ice to Northeast

A storm system that brought heavy snow and strong winds to the Great Plains and the Midwest was moving toward the Northeast on Sunday, forecasters said, threatening to complicate holiday travel plans.

As of Sunday morning, the storm had brought 14 inches of snow in Fargo, N.D., and about a foot in western Nebraska and northern South Dakota. The system is expected to move across the Great Lakes and arrive in New England by Tuesday morning, bringing the possibility of severe ice storms, said Patrick Burke, a meteorologist with the Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Md.

Several airlines issued travel notices for the upper Midwest as a result of the weather, including United Airlines, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines, offering people who are traveling just ahead of the new year the chance to change tickets without being charged a fee.

Mr. Burke said that snow and ice could affect air travel in Boston but that the worst weather was not expected to hit major airports.
