ALG Connect: Cross-Country Snowstorm Will Track from West to Parts of Great Lakes and Northeast

Cross-Country Snowstorm Will Track from West to Parts of Great Lakes and Northeast

A snowstorm tracking across the country could impact commutes in many cities from the Northern Plains to the upper Midwest, Great Lakes and Northeast as the workweek comes to a close. Thursday and Friday is when this storm will produce its greatest impacts from the Dakotas into the upper Midwest, Great Lakes and parts of the Northeast.

In the central states, the greatest chance for light to moderate accumulations is from the Dakotas into parts of Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, northern Illinois, Michigan, northern Indiana and northern Ohio. That includes northern Chicagoland, Detroit, Milwaukee and Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Snowfall in the Northeast will be light to moderate, with the most accumulations expected to the west of Interstate 95 in southwestern New York and Pennsylvania.

Wednesday: Snow is expected from the Cascades, Sierra Nevada and northern Rockies into the Northern Plains and upper Midwest. The snow could be a hazard for travelers, mainly in mountainous areas.

Thursday: The storm will intensify, which means moderate to locally heavy snow is expected in the Northern Plains and upper Midwest, including in Minneapolis-St. Paul; Rapid City, South Dakota; and Des Moines, Iowa.

Snow could spread as far east as northern Chicagoland or Milwaukee by late in the day or early evening, which might impact commuters in parts of those metro areas.

Friday: Snow and gusty winds will continue over the Great Lakes. Travel could be hazardous in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Detroit.

Parts of southern New York and central and northern Pennsylvania will also see snowfall develop during the day.
