A winter storm headed to the northeast Wednesday has many anticipating a major snow storm after reports suggested it might bring up to 13 inches of snow in some locations. 

Winter Storm Euclid brought snow and rain across the Midwest and South and was responsible for a number of tornadoes in the South, including six reported deaths, according to The Weather Channel. In the Midwest, Euclid dumped between 3 and 13 inches of snow. 

Thirty-four tornadoes were reported in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama during the storm's outbreak on Tuesday, and the snow storm left more than 189,000 customers in Arkansas without electricity Wednesday, utility Entergy Arkansas said.

"Winter twisters" damaged buildings in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, while snow blew across southern Illinois and southern Indiana early Wednesday, the report added. State police reported dozens of vehicles stuck on a highway in Indiana, where 6 or more inches of snow had fallen by midmorning, and some areas around Evansville had wind gusts around 30 miles per hour.

The storm will "shift from the Tennessee Valley to the East Coast Wednesday. Drawing cold air on its northwest periphery...snow, heavy at times, will spread from the Ohio Valley into the Great Lakes, finally ending in Michigan and northern Ohio early Thursday morning," The Weather Channel reported Wednesday. 

Total snowfall is expected to be in the 6 to 12 inch range from downstate Illinois through central Indiana and northern Ohio. The report said strong winds may lead to blizzard conditions in northeast Arkansas to northern Ohio Wednesday night. Blizzard warnings have been posted for some states from northeast Arkansas to Ohio. 

"A significant threat for strong, non-thunderstorm winds" for late Wednesday was also noted in the weather report. Those concerned are also advised to check for airport delays if post-Christmas travel is scheduled.
