    Millions across the Northeast were bracing Monday for a snowstorm churning east from the Plains and Great Lakes that canceled more than 1,400 flights in Chicago and sent a plane sliding off an icy Detroit runway.

    The storm’s nearly week-long cross-country push is likely to end Monday and could dump 3 inches to a foot of snow across large swaths of the Northeast, NBC News reported.

    The worst is expected to remain north of Interstate 80, according to The Weather Channel, with parts of New York State, New Hampshire, Vermont and much of Maine forecast to be hardest-hit.
