A storm will target close to 100 million people, dozens of major highways and many major airline hubs from Georgia to New York and Massachusetts Thursday.
The major cities from Atlanta to Charlotte, N.C., Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City and Boston will be hit in some way by this storm.
Even far away from the storm, across the nation, aircraft and crews may be displaced for the days during and following the storm.

The winter storm will also hit the I-81 corridor in the mid-Atlantic, as well as I-95 in the Northeast.
