    Snowstorm Leaves St. Louis, Indianapolis and Ohio Next

    The same storm system that dumped over a foot of snow in parts of Colorado at the start of the weekend move eastward Sunday, bringing snow to St. Louis, Springfield and Indianapolis.

    Snow made its way into Illinois and Indiana early Sunday morning, then arriving in Ohio by Sunday afternoon.

    The highest snow accumulations with this storm occurred over a narrow band where heavy snow will result in accumulations ranging from six inches to a foot.

    This band of heavy snow was expected set up in between I-70 and I-80, spanning just a few hundred miles and encompassing Jefferson City and St. Louis, Mo., Springfield, Ill., Indianapolis, Ind., and Dayton, Ohio.

    Some impressive totals came out of this storm as of Monday morning, when the storm moved eastward into parts of the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic.

    The city of St. Louis, Missouri, set multiple records with this storm. With a recorded 12.4 inches of snow as of Monday morning, with flurries still in the area, this storm became the biggest March snow storm in history.

    Travel conditions in the heaviest band of snow created treacherous snow-covered roads, along with flight delays.

    The weight of the snow, which topped half of a foot, could down trees and power lines.
