Like a fighter who has taken too many punches and was trying to find his balance, the Midwest sought to recover from wet snow and slick ice on Friday as flurries continued and roadways remained treacherous.
The storm, which on Thursday dropped more than a foot of snow in some areas, worked its way eastward across the upper Great Lakes dropping snow like confetti across the region. Parts of New England, which recently had as much as three feet of snow, appeared in line to get more precipitation through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
“The winter storm that brought more than a foot of snow to parts of the Plains is winding down, with a few inches of snow possible on Friday into Saturday across the Great Lakes,” the service said on its website.
While the more northerly climes were shaking off the snow, it remained stubbornly wet in the Southeast and could have unwanted consequences, the service said. “Heavy rain will bring a threat of flash flooding to parts of the Southeast,” it warned.
