A series of snowstorms rolling southeastward from western Canada will continue to affect a heavily populated area of the Midwest, centered on the I-80/90 corridor.
Due to the frigid air in place, most of the snow will stick to the roads making for slippery travel to I-70 and as far south as I-64.
Expect flight delays and cancellations due to deicing activities at local airports and due to aircraft and crews delayed from cities being hit with heavy snowfall in the East.
A general swath of 3 to 6 inches of snow is forecast will be on the ground by Friday, from eastern Missouri, to northern and central portions of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio to Pennsylvania. However, heavier snowfall is possible at the local level just downwind of lakes Michigan and Erie.
