Forecasters say the snow will begin Friday night, spreading from the northern Rockies and High Plains into the northern Plains and parts of the upper Midwest. On Saturday, light to moderate snow will move to the Great Lakes and freezing rain, sleet or snow may fall in southern Appalachia.
Meteorologists said accumulations will be light to moderate, with less than 6 inches expected in most areas but parts of the northern High Plains of Montana and the far western Dakotas may see greater amounts.
According to the forecasts, fans going to Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Sunday better bundle up; temperatures at kickoff will hover around 6 or 7 degrees. ■
