The National Weather Service issued winter-weather warnings and advisories and expects the snow to continue through Friday in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and MI. Chicago Public Schools canceled classes Friday.

There are some school and organization closings, mainly to the south and east of Rochester. Winds could gust as high as 22 miles per hour.

In addition, meteorologists say light accumulating snow is possible Saturday night into Sunday as low pressure tracks through the eastern Ohio Valley.

There were also several flights delayed or canceled at the Greater Rochester International Airport.

According to National Weather Service data, Fort Assiniboine west of Havre has already received 59.0 inches of snow thus far this season, far eclipsing the 40.3 inches reported by the same date in 1959.

For now the Winter Storm Warning is still in effect in the Quad Cities.

Road travelers should also check weather updates, exercise caution and leave themselves plenty of extra travel time if staying put isn't an option as several inches of snow are expected in a large zone stretching from Montana to ME through Friday night. As warmer air pushes north, the snow will change to freezing rain or sleet along Interstate 70 between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m.

Travel in southern Wisconsin could be tough Friday as a major snowstorm plows through the region Thursday night into the morning. Snow across southern and central MI ranged from 7 inches on the western side of the state to more than 2 inches so far in the Detroit area. Be prepared for reduced visibilities and hazardous travel conditions at times. Travelers can call 511 for the latest road conditions in Wisconsin. Low around 21. Wind chill values between 15 and 20. We can see how the northern area of snow dwindles while the southern area of snow continues heavily. Vehicles parked on posted snow routes will be ticketed and may be towed.
