A winter storm sweeping across the Midwest took aim at the East Coast overnight, bringing rain, ice and potentially as much as two feet of snow to some areas.

The snowy blast could cause havoc for commuters from Illinois to Maine, where winter storm warnings and advisories were in effect through Tuesday morning and into Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Highway pileups and other weather-related accidents had been reported in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa, while inbound flights to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport were delayed by more than four hours as of Monday night, according to the flight tracking site Flightaware.
