Another winter storm is expected to move across the Midwest United States and into the Northeast this weekend, delivering more accumulation to already snow-weary parts of the country, as well as fresh powder to more parts.

In Des Moines, Iowa, an estimated 2” to 4” is expected to fall Saturday night, with an additional 1” to 3” possible on Sunday. Madison, Wisconsin may see up to 2” of snow on Saturday, as well as 3” on Sunday.
Chicagoland could see 2” to 4” on Saturday, while Detroit could potentially get between 2” and 7” of snowfall on Sunday. In Columbus, Ohio, up to 7” of snow is could fall by the end of Sunday.
As the storm moves east, Pittsburgh could see a combination of snow and freezing rain on Sunday, with around 0.5” of accumulation possible, and Philadelphia will experience similar conditions. Meanwhile, New York City may see between 2” and 4” of snow on Sunday.
On Groundhog Day, snow will continue in parts of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, with accumulations likely just in time for the morning commute along the I-95 corridor from Philadelphia to Boston. Snow is forecast to continue in New York and eastern New England well into the evening.
