ALG Connect: Winter Storm To Track from Northern Plains to Great Lakes, Northeast

Winter Storm To Track from Northern Plains to Great Lakes, Northeast

A winter storm tracking across the nation's northern tier could impact travel in many cities from the Northern Plains to the upper Midwest, Great Lakes and Northeast as the workweek comes to a close. The storm is spreading snow across the Northern Plains and upper Midwest at this time. This snowfall will become more expansive as it spreads east through the day and overnight.

The National Weather Service has issued winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories from the Plains into the southern Great Lakes and interior Northeast. These areas could see impacts to travel, with the worst conditions expected in locations under warnings, including Milwaukee.

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.

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 Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit and Milwaukee. Parts of southern New York and central and northern Pennsylvania will also see snowfall develop during the day.
