Climate Service forecasts heavy snow from Chicago to…

"Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel hard over some locations", Environment Canada said on its website. Officials for the City of South Lyon say their snow emergency will be in effect starting at 8am tomorrow morning and will last through 1pm Sunday.

Ahead of a new storm blasting through the Upper Midwest, 12 states from Montana to OH are heeding winter-weather alerts. Another system could bring us up to 4 inches of snow on Sunday.

Chilly weather is going to accompany the storm. Some 300 pieces of snow-fighting equipment and 220,000 tons of salt were in position, they said at a Thursday afternoon news conference. Recent sleet and rainfall in the past week has stabilized the escalating drought, but the precipitation deficit persists as the growing season draws closer and the snow drought drags on.

Schools in Detroit also shut for the day. On Wednesday in the city, plows worked well into the evening Wednesday just trying to get ahead of the snow that's expected to blanket a wide stretch of Chicagoland. Air traffic delays and cancellations are mounting at its two airports and that will probably ripple throughout the system, disrupting flights across the U.S.

Chicago's O'Hare and Midway worldwide airports cancelled more than 170 flights on Thursday before the storm hit, and several airlines were also anticipating delays or cancellations. More than 260 flights were canceled at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus, Michigan.

Snow has started to fall in Great Falls and will continue throughout the afternoon and evening.

Some 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm) of snow and a 1/4 inch (.5 cm) of ice accumulation were in the forecast, the National Weather Service said. It's not expected to impact NY or the other East Coast cities. Our high temperatures occurred shortly after midnight (when temps were still in the 40s) and now it's about a passing arctic cold front - crashing temperatures as it moves through our area.

Otherwise, expect cloudy and dry conditions overnight. Colder readings will grip the upper Great Plains into the western Great Lakes from February 13 to 22, according to Radiant Solutions in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Most of the snowfall should be east of our area by midday.

"Sometimes you don't need a big low to get heavy snow", he said.
