STORMTracker meteorologist Mike Rawlins says a wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet is now expected along Interstate 15 from near Conrad to Great Falls to Helena, which will cut down on snow totals. Another winter storm is forecast to paste the Midwest with heavy snow on Thursday and Friday. In fact, our next decent round of snow for Friday is expected to be the biggest one of the week.

Harve, Montana was slammed with 13 inches of snow over a 30-hour period while freezing rain across parts of the state Thursday created hard traveling conditions.

The heaviest snow in Mid-Michigan appears to be will be roughly from southern Gratiot to Shiawassee, Genesee, and Lapeer counties. The snow is expected to taper off from west to east by late Friday afternoon.

“The snowfall for today will taper off this afternoon and end sometime around 6 and 9 p.m.,” Frey said.

A Winter Storm Warning is set to go into effect at 6 p.m. Thursday for most of the Chicago area. This along with strong wind speeds will make morning travel incredibly hard.




In the Calgary area, the agency is forecasting 25 to 35 centimetres of snow while some areas in the mountain parks and the Foothills could get as much as 50 cm.

A Divvy bicycle rider deposits his bike in a rental kiosk as a winter storm makes its way through several Midwest states February 9, 2018, in Chicago. On the other hand, over the last winters we haven't had a snow at this level.

Borremans said skies should be mostly sunny both Sunday and Monday, with the high reaching 27 on Monday. "And while some computer models are still suggesting heavy snow in the Quad Cities tonight, I'm straying from that output and going with the lower range of 2-5" in the Quad Cities.

The Illinois Department of Transportation tweeted road conditions were deteriorating Thursday night across the top of the state as the system neared Chicago. As the arctic air moves south, temperatures will drop significantly, and any snow or ice that has melted will re-freeze, then snow will fall on top of that.
