Major cities in the mammoth watch area included Philadelphia; Baltimore; Richmond, Virginia; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Memphis and Nashville in Tennessee.
"This will be bad," said Kevin Roth, lead meteorologist at The Weather Channel. "It is going to snow hard and it's going to be hard for road crews to keep up so driving will be difficult."
A colossal winter storm forecast to bring heavy snow to at least 15 states over the weekend was taking shape over the Plains early Thursday.
The impact of the storm was daunting: 80 million people were under either a blizzard watch, winter storm watch, winter storm warning, winter weather advisory or freezing rain advisory as of Thursday morning.
Meteorologists predict the storm will focus most of its power on Washington, D.C., which could see around 2 feet of snow and dangerous blizzard conditions from Friday through Sunday. NBC meteorologist Bill Karins said the impact of the storm could be "historic" for the nation's capital, Baltimore, Maryland, and Charlotte, North Carolina.

Yea. To me this is just a standard winter storm that we get in January, and one that won't result in time off of work at that. In fact, it's more than likely also going to ruin any plans I have for the weekend as well. So eff this thing.
