More snow is expected to drop on the U.S. Northeast, Great Lakes and the Plains just days after Winter Storm Maximus dumped several inches over a wide swath of the country. Winter Storm Nika is the 14th storm to be named this season by the Weather Channel, and its wintry blasts will add to the accumulation that dropped just hours after the Super Bowl ended.

"Nika will quickly shift from out of the Plains and head for the southern Great Lakes and Ohio Valley on Tuesday, delivering a widespread swath of snow, sleet and freezing rain along the way," Weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce said.

"Some cities could see more than six inches of snow. Tuesday night into Wednesday, this wintry mess will spread into the Northeast,” he added. “Heavy snow is possible from upstate New York into central and northern New England, with a wintry mix farther south."

Rumors have surfaced claiming there could be 20 inches of snow within the next few days, but the Weather Channel cautioned people to be wary of wild reports. Specific snow amounts more than 48 hours in advance are not always accurate.

A Facebook post by Chicago’s WGN News showed that by Wednesday snow in the Chicago area could accumulate to more than 18 inches in most places. The post from last Thursday was shared nearly 5,000 times and had many people thinking they would see another 18 inches of snow instead of overall accumulation.
