(Undated) -- A nasty winter storm is already pelting the Northeast with snow, but the worst is still ahead. Snow started to fall overnight in the region, with parts of Illinois reporting more than a foot since New Year's Eve. The brunt of the snowstorm is expected to hit from New York to Boston starting tonight and continuing into Friday morning. A section of the state stretching from the Empire State to Massachusetts is preparing for blizzard conditions. A blast of arctic air will follow the storm, plunging temperatures to possible record lows.
