Another 1-3 inches of snow is expected on Saturday. Snow is expected to spread across much of northern Iowa Thursday afternoon and continue to spread southward into central Iowa Thursday night.

A winter weather advisory has been upgraded to a winter storm warning for Allegheny County, as a complex storm is expected to hit the area Wednesday morning.

"Sometimes you don't need a big low to get heavy snow", he said.

Heavy snow possible. Total snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are possible.

There are some school and organization closings, mainly to the south and east of Rochester. Travelers can call 511 for the latest road conditions in Wisconsin.

As of 10am on Wednesday, Atlanta, located at the very bottom of the storm, had the most delays in the nation, followed by Chicago, Detroit, and two NYC-area airports - Newark Liberty and LaGuardia.
