Wet snow is flying this morning around Chicago with an icy mix in St. Louis.

By Friday, the storm system will lift north bringing a heavier band of snow from north of St. Louis to just north of Chicago.

To the east and south, heavy rain will be falling from Ohio to the Carolinas, with a few thunderstorms also possible in the Carolinas.

Part of the same storm will redevelop on the East Coast by Saturday, bringing heavy rain to the I-95 corridor from Washington, D.C., to New York City and Boston.

The total snowfall for the entire storm duration will be near a half a foot in northern Great Lakes, with 3 to 6 inches of snow from Missouri to near Chicago and into Wisconsin.

For the Northeast, snow will be limited to the higher elevations of Pennsylvania and New York, into Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, where 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible.
