AccuWeather.com reports snow lovers will be pleased to see that the bands of snow that fell through much of the Midwest Wednesday will continue today.
However, these light snow showers and flurries may cause some problems on the roadways.
Although snow is expected to fall from northern Michigan through the Ohio River Valley Thursday, little to no accumulation is expected for most of the area.
Up to an inch of new snow is possible in locations that get a heavier band.
This snow will linger through the day, allowing for rain to mix in with the snow from southern Ohio and Indiana through Kentucky and northern Tennessee to Nashville.This nuisance snow will make for yet another day of tricky commutes for the area, recovering the roadways with a dusting of snow.
Slick spots are most likely in the morning; In addition to cold air from Canada rushing in behind the storm, falling morning temperatures will be cold enough for rain and slush to refreeze.
To avoid travel complications, give yourself some extra time to get to your destination so that you can drive cautiously.
Thursday, higher snow accumulations are expected in the Northeast, where the center of the storm will move through.
Highest accumulations today into Friday morning are expected in Maine where up to 6 inches are possible. Pockets of 1 to 3 inches are possible in northwest Pennsylvania and northern New York.
