While heavy snow and ice are not expected to fall over much of the Midwest through Monday, some slippery roads and travel disruptions are likely.
Most of the precipitation associated with a new storm swinging up from the Southwest states is focusing from the Appalachians to the Atlantic Coast.
However, a large swath of light snow, on the order of 1 to 3 inches of accumulation will keep spreading from Iowa to Michigan through Sunday night.
While not a significant amount, the snow is still enough to cause a nuisance to residents and motorists by covering roads and creating slick travel.
Another hazard for motorists will be freezing drizzle that accompanies the snow across the eastern and lower Great Lakes.
Cities that can have slippery travel and flight delays for a time include Omaha, Neb.; Minneapolis, Des Moines, Green Bay, Chicago, Detroit and Cleveland.
A swath of moderate snow will occur farther north from part of the northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan to portions of Ontario and Quebec.
The storm system is large and will impact much of the eastern half of the nation with travel delays.
In the storm's wake, lake-effect snow will stream across Michigan on Monday.
