The storm in a series of Alberta Clippers has blanketed the Minneapolis area with snow and is set to do the same in Chicago, Indianapolis and Cincinnati through Saturday night.
While this storm will not be as strong as the clipper that brought high winds, moderate snow and multiple accidents to the region Thursday into Friday, it is dropping enough snow to cause slippery travel.
Motorists should expect slow travel at times along the I-70 and I-80 corridors from Illinois to Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.
The snow earlier Saturday morning totaled 4.5 inches at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and a record 5.7 inches at St. Cloud, Minn., according to official National Weather Service observations.
Enough snow can fall to cause flight delays at Chicago, Indianapolis and Cincinnati.
The storm will turn more to the east Saturday night bringing a inch or two of snow to areas from Charleston and Huntington, W.Va., to Pittsburgh.
In the wake of the storm on Sunday, temperatures will briefly rebound, ahead of much colder air that will sweep in from northwest to southeast Sunday night, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
