Mid-Michigan will be on the edge of a rain-snow line, which could bring a mix of heavy snow, sleet and freezing rain blown around by winds gusting to 40 miles per hour. Another moderate round of snow is expected Thursday night into Friday.

We will start the day with mostly sunny skies early in the morning, but it will turn cloudy.

The snow will come in three waves beginning Sunday evening, followed by systems coming to the region Monday night and Thursday night.

Sunday night will feature clear skies with temperatures in the teens.

"Plan on 4"+ north and west of Boston, less than 4" south of Boston, and 3-4" in the city before the changeover.

In these areas, there can be 6-12 inches of snow with an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 18 inches. According to him, parts of the region could be measuring snow in feet by then.

The amount of precipitation will depend on the weather system's exact path, and "how for north the milder air can get into southern Ontario", said the statement.

"Disruptions to logistical operations are expected due to heavy snowfall causing hazardous travel conditions", Clark said. This will be another system that brings a variety of precipitation types with it. Areas along US20 in Northern Illinois and Northeast Iowa will see mainly snow at the onset of this event, with locations on either side of the I 80 corridor seeing a mix.

Seattle has a website dedicated to the snow storm with information on the city's response.

Storms have delivered more snow to Seattle in the first days of February than it usually gets in a year, The Seattle Times reported.

Meanwhile, enough rain may fall to aggravate the flooding situation from Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky, to the southern portions of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

Between five and 15 centimetres of snow and ice pellets are expected to accumulate in some areas, along with ice buildup from freezing rain.
