A winter storm system could dump about a foot of snow over large swaths of the northeastern U.S. on Christmas Day, according to weather forecasts,

The incoming “bomb cyclone” is good news for those who love a White Christmas, but not good news for the millions of people set to travel for the holidays. Travelers across the region can expect slippery roads and reduced visibility.

Weather forecasts show a stretch of foot-deep snowfall across New England and upstate New York, according to meteorologist Ryan Maue. Meanwhile, the Northeast storm could merge with a storm brewing over the Great Lakes region, meaning more wintery weather.

Maue had been watching the storm’s movement for hours, cautioning that a storm’s forecasted trajectory can change, shifting the lines of rain and snow.

Northeasterners can expect precipitation to start falling late at night on Christmas Eve, and continue into Christmas Day.
