Winter Storm Warning Issued as Heavy Snow Heads Toward Central Iowa

Winter storm warning Feb 06 2018

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.

A light snow falls as maintenance employee Dennis McGowan shovels the main walkway at the entrance of Fort Loramie High School in Fort Loramie, Ohio, on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2018.

The cities of South Lyon, Howell, and Brighton, and the village of Pinckney have declared snow emergencies with the forecast calling for a significant accumulation of snow. Snow is expected to spread across much of northern Iowa Thursday afternoon and continue to spread southward into central Iowa Thursday night. The express lanes will close at 9 p.m. for snow removal and will reopen in the inbound direction at 5 a.m. Saturday, when the normal schedule for the reversible lanes will resume.

A Winter Storm Warning will be in effect beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday night as 6-10 inches of snow is expected to fall in northern IL.

The snow that moves in Friday will be another long duration type snow event, lasting from early Friday morning through Friday evening.

As we would expect, the heavy snow area outlined above is for most of the southern third of Lower Michigan.

Airlines were already canceling flights for Friday ahead of a winter storm that's forecast to dump up to a foot of snow across the Midwest, including in Chicago and its busy air-travel hubs. We know that the nature of recent storms - including Sunday's wet, heavy snow followed by rain and a hard freeze - can make this cleanup difficult for everyone including our crews working downtown, but it is vitally important for accessibility and safety. Lows tonight near 5 degrees and highs in the mid 20s Thursday.

DeKalb County is bracing for another dumping of the snow on the area.

Snow coming in later Thursday and continuing Friday could dump 2 to 3 inches of snow in Madison, with higher amounts in the 4 to 6 inch range along the state line, and up to a foot of snow is possible across northern IL.

State Department of Transportation snow and ice operations will be deployed as conditions necessitate. Slow down when traveling on snow covered roads.
