Cold air behind Tuesday’s storm will continue to make problems for the Midwest and the central Appalachians on Wednesday.
Additional significant snow accumulations are in store Wednesday from from Kansas to Michigan and from central Pennsylvania to western New York.
While crews were working on cleaning up the mess, ongoing snow and advancing snow showers will continue the slippery conditions into Wednesday night.
Behind the main force of the storm, chilly air is circulating around the system.
Where snow showers roll through late in the afternoon and evening, mainly north of the Ohio River, roads can go from just wet to slushy, icy and snow-covered.
According to Expert Senior Meteorologist, Alex Sosnowski, this colder air “combined with lingering moisture, will translate to a change to snow or snow showers on Wednesday farther south and east in much of the Midwest. This can lead to renewed slippery spots and snow-covered roads.”
Rain changed back to snow over portions of Pennsylvania and western New York Wednesday morning, where a few additional inches are forecast, on top of the wintry mix that occurred Tuesday night.
More snow is expected to move into the Northeast through Thursday and in New England through Friday as the storm stalls through the end of the week.
Snow piled up in Michigan Tuesday night, accumulating 4 inches northwest of Detroit before becoming intermittent Wednesday.
As of 4 a.m. CST, 10.1 inches of snow fell in Richmond, Ill., northwest of Chicago. Ten inches also fell in Valders in eastern Wisconsin.
Chicago’s O’Hare Airport had their biggest single snowfall of the season with just under 5 inches. This has pushed the snowfall for the season to about 60 percent of normal.
