According to the National Weather Service, widespread snowfall between 2-4 inches is expected primarily in areas along and south of Interstate 80 in Iowa.

After almost nine inches of snow fell Friday, more is expected - up to 3 inches on Sunday for areas south of M-59, according to the National Weather Service. Across southern NH, a touch of freezing drizzle is possible in spots early with a rain shower or two possible throughout the rest of the day.

Some light snow may linger across eastern Kansas early Sunday morning.

Heading into the weekend the biggest concern for SW Montana will be the bitter cold temperatures especially during the morning as wind chills will likely dip below zero Saturday.

At this time I am not expecting much in the way of accumulating snow.

"Widespread accumulations during this period look to be on the order or at least a few inches", the weather service said. Snow will be heavy at times, and with a light breeze, visibility may be reduced at times. The heaviest rain looks set to hit southeastern Pennsylvania, parts of New Jersey and in northeast Maryland and northern DE, the weather service said on Saturday. Winds will mainly be out of the west causing some blowing a drifting snow to cover north-south roads.

Temperatures were warmer Friday with a high of 56 degrees and a low of 29 degrees Friday night. Cloudy, with a high near 35.

Tuesday - Partly sunny, with a high near 34.

Three or more inches of snow fell in the Windy City overnight into Sunday, adding to the 10 inches that fell in the region on Friday.
