The first round of snow could bring 4 to 8 inches of snow, while the second could bring an additional 8 or more inches.

In addition to the snow, winds could gust as high as 45 mph and lead to areas of blowing snow and blizzard conditions.

The weather agency advises travel could be difficult to impossible with blowing snow reducing visibility.

Wind chills as low as 20 degrees below zero could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.
