Weather starts to warm up as we head into the weekend

"The Friday morning rush is gonna be trouble", National Weather Service meteorologist Charles Mott had told the Chicago Tribune.

Chilly weather is going to accompany the storm.

At this point, most snow is done and we're in clean up mode through early Thursday. It will basically park itself right over southeast MI, predominantly south of the Metro, and dump several inches of snow on the ground before it finally moves east in the afternoon.

All areas under storm watch are predicted to see another quick round of snowfall before precipitation ends around midnight on Wednesday. Environment Canada issued a Winter Storm Warning Wednesday morning with a forecast that called for 10 centimetres of snow Wednesday night.

A parking ban was called Monday after a weekend of snowfall, but it was lifted Wednesday at 7 a.m. WDIV (Channel 4) lists 245 school closings or delays on Friday.

To the east, snow emergencies have been declared in many metro Detroit communities, according to CNN affiliate WDIV.

Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation Commissioner John Tully said 300 salt-spreading plows hit the streets late Thursday and would continue their work through Friday.

The storm system that is generating today's snow and rain has been tracking from the Tennessee River Valley to southeastern Pennsylvania, DiMartino said. The heaviest snow is expected between 1-9pm.

"Make no mistake about it: This is a heavy snow, heavier than we have seen in a number of winters", Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told CNN Thursday.

Five inches of snow is expected to fall during the day and another inch is possible at night. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible. Sunday's storm here brought from 2 inches in the Susquehanna River Valley to 5 or more inches in the higher elevations north and west of Lock Haven.

Tuesday: Partly sunny with a high near 37 degrees and a low of about 25 degrees.
