Last weekend, it was the East Coast of the United States that was battered by Winter Storm Jonas. This time, it’s going to be the Midwest and Southwest.

People already are calling it the “Ground Hog Day blizzard,” but forecasts are calling for the storm to hit a 1,600-mile stretch from Arizona to Michigan, starting on Sunday night.

But fortunately for the people living in those states, the weather won’t be quite as intense as what the East Coast got. AccuWeather Meteorologist Brett Rathbun predicts a 6 to 12-inch snowfall, with localized areas where it may get as deep as 18 inches.

But the winds, which may top out at 50 miles per hour, will be powerful enough to cause power outages.

The the low-pressure front causing the storm will pass through the eastern Great Lakes and into Canada. That means that the East Coast probably won’t get that much snow and sleet, but the National Weather Service forecast does call for several days of rain starting on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officially has ranked Jonas as the fourth most severe snowstorm to hit the East Coast since 1850. The storm received a Category 4 or “crippling” rating on NOAA’s Northeast Snowfall Impact Scale, which factors in the size of the affected area, the amount of snow and the number of people living in the storm’s path.

The most intense winter storm on NOAA’s scale in that time period was the monster blizzard that hit the Mid-Atlantic and New England states in March 1993.

Finally, Punxsutawney Phil, who’s set to make his annual prediction of the remaining duration of winter on Tuesday, hasn’t yet commented on the immediate forecast on his Twitter account.
