Tracking chilly lows for Wednesday night

Hey Chicago, Get Ready for the Season's Biggest Snowstor

Hey Chicago, Get Ready for the Season's Biggest Snowstor

So far today, Liam has caused a plane to slide off a runway in Baltimore and severe weather advisories have been issued across 20 states.

The snow and ice ahead of the storm was already hitting Louisville, Detroit and Cleveland overnight, and it is moving into Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City on Wednesday morning.

We are closely watching another storm system that will bring more snow to the viewing area Thursday night and Friday.

Carroll said she thinks Friday's snowstorm is the kind cities in NY and the East Coast are usually socked with.

Weather service meteorologist Trent Frey says the forecast is for up to nine inches of snow in Detroit through late Friday. Most area expressways were covered with snow and ice and visibility was low, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation winter condition report. The area in and around of the city could still exceed 8 inches of snow, with some southern parts of the Chicago area seeing lesser amounts.

As of 5 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, the winter storm watch extended from Red Deer County to the entire southern border of Alberta.

In Massachusetts, the snow portion of the storm wrapped up by late afternoon. Schools throughout the region closed Friday and the storm is expected to continue throughout the day. There's a lot at play here - from a tricky temperature forecast, to locking down the exact track of the weather-maker itself, even to how much snow we're expecting. The weather service said 3 to 6 inches more snow was expected through the morning. What once looked like a rain/snow mix on Saturday, is now looking like plain old snow. Expect highs around the low 20s.

For the meteorological winter of December through February, Madison has received 2.86 inches of precipitation, 0.37 inches below normal, and 2.13 inches in 2018, 0.64 inches above normal.

Havre, Mt., picked up the greatest amount of snowfall by Friday morning - 13 inches in just a 30-hour period.
