While the worst of this weekend's blizzard targets areas from southern Minnesota and northern Iowa into northern Michigan, places farther south and east, including Chicago and Detroit, will also have significant impacts.
Rain or a rain/snow mix in Chicago and Detroit will change over to all snow tonight and continue into Sunday. A general 2 to 4 inches is forecast for both cities with areas north and west picking up even higher amounts.
At the same time, howling winds capable of gusting past 50 mph will also develop through Sunday, causing significant blowing and drifting of the snow with dangerously low visibility.
