KANSAS CITY, Mo. (March 22, 2013)--The Midwest is facing its third major storm in a month and as much as a foot of snow is expected barely a week after some cities experienced record highs.
The storm system also could generate thunderstorms and tornadoes in parts of the South this weekend.
The National Weather Service says as much as a foot of snow could start falling on northwest Kansas on Friday night, while Kansas City, Mo., Indianapolis, and Omaha, Neb., could get as much as 8 inches.
Snow is expected to start in those cities late Saturday afternoon and continue through midday Sunday.
The system is expected to carry snow into the Northeast early next week.
In the South, forecasters say the system could spark tornadoes in Louisiana and Mississippi on Saturday.
