Major winter storm could bring up to 12 inches of snow

Friday night there is a 40 percent chance of snow. This would mean 5 to 7 inches of snow in areas near the Wisconsin-Illinois border, 3 to 5 inches in the Madison area and 1 to 3 inches near Wisconsin Dells. Total daytime snow and sleet accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

The weather service issued a winter storm warning for most of ME late Tuesday afternoon, in advance of the storm.

“The snowfall for today will taper off this afternoon and end sometime around 6 and 9 p.m.,” Frey said.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch starting Thursday night through Friday evening for Barry, Eaton, Ingham, Livingston, Calhoun, Jackson, Washtenaw, Branch, Hillsdale and Lenawee Counties in the WILX Viewing area.

By the morning commute Friday, expect snowy conditions just about everywhere.

Winter storm watches and warnings are in effect Thursday all the way from Montana to MI.

A winter storm that began in Montana, the Dakotas and Minnesota will move east Friday and inundate major metropolitan areas in the upper Midwest - including Chicago, Milwaukee and Detroit - with several inches of snow. A WINTER STORM WARNING is already in effect for counties across north-central Montana, where snowfall will be the most severe. Wind chill could drag that figure down to -17 degrees. The northern edge of heavy snow through 10 a.m. could come up to the Grand Rapids, Lansing and Flint areas. We hope you got a chance to enjoy yesterday's attractive weather (mostly sunny skies with highs in the middle 50s) because it feels like a different season out there today.

Snow coming in later Thursday and continuing Friday could dump 2 to 3 inches of snow in Madison, with higher amounts in the 4 to 6 inch range along the state line, and up to a foot of snow is possible across northern IL. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1. Slow down when traveling on snow covered roads.

Most school districts cancelled classes on Friday before any snow started falling, including the Chicago Public Schools.
