Upper Midwest, parts of Northeast prepare for another big winter storm

Upper Midwest, parts of Northeast prepare for another big winter storm

Total accumulations of up to 8 inches is possible.

The Winter Storm warning for heavy snow accumulating up to a foot, possibly more in spots over Chicago area counties along and north of Interstate-80 has been moved up to noon CST Friday.

The first part of a narrow band of heavy snow arrived Thursday night at the United States' third-largest city by population. While a December cold snap reached deep into the U.S. South and even brought a dusting of snow to Houston, there haven't been many blockbuster blizzards in the Midwest or the big East Coast cities. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Dane, Richland, Sauk, Columbia, Dodge and Jefferson counties for amounts of 3 to 6 inches there.

The snow likely will end in the late evening Friday or early morning hours of Saturday.

"Steady snow is expected during the early morning hours", 18 Storm Team Meteorologist Stevie Daniels said.

"New Yorkers across the state should be prepared in advance for heavy snow that is now forecast to hit parts of upstate the hardest", Gov. Cuomo said.




Tonight there's a 90 percent chance of 2 inches of new snow accumulation after 7 p.m.

Tuesday: Partly sunny with a high near 37 degrees and a low of about 25 degrees.

With almost a foot of snow in the forecast for Friday, some folks crowded their ways into stores to stock up on food and other items in anticipation of being hunkered down for at least one day.

It's estimated that 83 million Americans are now under winter storm advisories or warnings today. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.

More snow will pour in Saturday during the morning and last into the afternoon.

"Please remember with all of the school closings that there will be lots of kids playing in the snow and they may not be watching!"
