I wish I had good news for folks across the Great Lakes to the Northeast, but it would appear that winter is going to continue right into March. While we have a warmup coming this week, it will be brief and will take out only some of the snow cover across the Ohio Valley. I don't see all that much of the snow cover in the Appalachians and Northeast going away with the warmup coming which means we only add on to the snow cover with the next round of winter storms next week.
Below is the snow map for today's storm which will hit the Northeast with up to a foot of snow. Yep so what's new? More snow. Another weaker system will come through the same areas tomorrow with another 1-6 inches of snow and a wintry mix on the southern edge. The storms just keep adding on to the snow cover which is becoming more concerning with time for flooding if a sudden warmup hits. So far, there's no sign of any warmup, only more cold weather and snow through mid-March.
Severe weather is on tap for Thursday as a storm moves into the western Great Lakes. The impacts of the severe weather in the area shown on the map below will be widespread damaging wind gusts and a tornado threat for Tennessee into Mississippi and Louisiana.

The next couple of weeks will bring several big storms.
Heavy rains will hit California this weekend and cause serious flooding.
Another snowstorm will hit Maine and add to the snowcover.
A severe weather outbreak will occur Tuesday across eastern Texas and spread into Louisiana Tuesday night.
We are not done yet as the pattern will go to the extremes with at least 3 more major storms.
A storm that will last six to eight hours in any one location will produce some interesting weather.
