Even though spring may have sprung across much of the country, a major late-season winter storm is threatening to bring blizzard conditions to the Central U.S. — and the storm’s impact could be felt nationwide.

The National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center said Tuesday the developing “significant” storm system will first bring snow over the Cascades before spreading over the Northern Rockies into the Upper Midwest by midweek.

“A blizzard my friends, in April, it’s happening across portions of South Dakota up towards Nebraska and then into Wisconsin,” Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean said on “FOX & friends.” “We could see over a foot of snow and windy conditions and the potential for flooding ahead of this, some ice as well.”

Heavy snow and strong winds are forecast to produce “life-threatening” travel conditions across the region starting Wednesday, according to the WPC. Blizzard conditions are expected as winds intensify late Tuesday into Wednesday.

“The heavy wet snow may also lead to power outages,” the NWS said.

Besides heavy snow, rain will stretch across parts of the central U.S. that are still dealing with river flooding, including Iowa and Illinois. There is also the threat of severe weather for the Mississippi and Ohio River valleys through Thursday.

The intense storm system may affect up to 200 million Americans by the end of the week, according to AccuWeather.

Blizzard warnings stretch from Nebraska to western Minnesota, where up to 2 feet of “very heavy and wet” snow may fall.

“A potentially historic winter storm will bring severe impacts Wednesday night into early Friday, similar to the one last April,” the NWS Twin Cities office said on Twitter.

“This may not be your typical blizzard with dry, powdery snow for the Plains and Upper Midwest,” said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. “But, this may be more of a plastering effect with heavy, wet snow that is difficult to shovel and plow.”

Heavy snow may also impact the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, which is also forecast to see rain before the changeover to frozen precipitation.

“If the mix doesn`t reach as far north as the Twin Cities, then perhaps the metro could experience blizzard conditions as well — similar to what happened last year,” the NWS office said.

After impacting the Central U.S., the storm system is forecast to eventually bring rain to the Northeast by the end of the week.
