  • Season's biggest storm coming

Heavy snow and strong winds already pounded Chicago and Detroit, where public school systems opted not to open Friday, CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said.

Snow is likely on Saturday as well, especially in southeast Wisconsin, but the snowfall isn't expected to be as deep as what's forecast Thursday into Friday.

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

Travel could become almost impossible at times due to the amount of snow coming down, along with the potential for icing farther west near I-15.

The heaviest snow in Mid-Michigan appears to be will be roughly from southern Gratiot to Shiawassee, Genesee, and Lapeer counties.

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from tonight until the late morning on Friday for those along Interstate 80 with a Winter Storm Warning in effect for those between Hwy 30 and Hwy 20.

Anyone who needed to travel Friday morning should allow for extra time, the service stated.

The storm comes midway through a relatively uneventful winter, at least for parts of the U.S. The western half of the country has logged warmer-than-normal average temperatures, and for most of the East, it's been pretty typical, according to the National Centers for Environmental Information.

The Chicago area is bracing for the biggest snow storm of the season starting Thursday night. On the other hand, over the last winters we haven't had a snow at this level. With diminished snow/flurries and temperatures in the 20s Friday afternoon, melting will be minimal on untreated roads and streets, making driving still slow and hard in many areas.

Farther north and east, the storm is still expected to drop 12"+ of snow on the Hi-Line and across central Montana". Wind chill values could be as low as -5 degrees.

Snow moves in as early as 10 PM tonight in areas around Berrien County.

The Des Moines Register reported that three to seven inches of snow fell in northern Iowa Friday morning.

"Snowfall amounts look to be in the 4-7" range in the Lansing area with lesser amounts north in Clinton, Ionia and Shiawassee Counties.

Road conditions began deteriorating Thursday night as the system neared Chicago, the Illinois Department of Transportation tweeted.

Authorities across IL prepared some 300 pieces of snow-fighting equipment and thousands of tons of salt for almost 16,000 miles of highways and state roads.
