As waves of cold air continue to push southward from the Canadian Prairies, episodes of snow will persist around the Great Lakes region into the weekend.
A storm forecast to bring a warmup with showers and thunderstorms to the Mississippi and Ohio valleys on Thursday into Friday will spread a swath of snow from parts of the Dakotas to northern Minnesota and Wisconsin and part of the Upper Michigan Peninsula.
While a broad area of heavy snow is not expected, a few inches of snow can fall on a narrow zone in this area. Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., is one of a few locations that can receive enough snow to shovel and plow.
Most areas within this swath will have little to no accumulation from wet snow or a rain/snow mix. However, just enough can fall on a cold ground to create slippery travel in Minneapolis, Green Bay, Wis., and Fargo, N.D.
Looking forward a few days to Saturday, it appears as though another storm system can bring snow, this time to areas in the Ohio Valley.
Flakes could fly in places like Toledo, Ohio, where one of the coldest winters in 20 years has already set the record as the snowiest winter ever, with records that date back to the 1800s.
With no more than a couple of inches of snow possible across the region, this is not likely to be a big storm either, but in a winter that many just want to be over with, signs of spring remain few and far between.
