    Roads Slippery from Snow, Chicago to Raleigh

    Roads will be slippery and dangerous from Chicago to Raleigh as a storm continues to drop snow over the Virginias and North Carolina through tonight.

    A storm moving from Tennessee to coastal North Carolina is the culprit behind the travel-disrupting snow from the Midwest to the South.

    The AccuWeather.com Winter Weather Center has a map of expected snowfall through tonight.

    Snowfall totals will not be very high in North Carolina or Virginia due to the storm's fast movement.

    However, temperatures will be plunging into the teens and 20s from Chicago to Raleigh tonight, threatening dangerous, icy roads even where snow has diminished.

    The I-40 and I-81 corridors will be among those impacted by dangerous winter driving conditions.

    Up to 11 inches of snow thumped over portions of North Dakota and Minnesota as the storm clipped the region late in the week, leading to travel trouble.

    An airplane slipped off the runway at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport on Friday evening as a couple of inches of snow blanketed the ground and frigid temperatures were in place.
