Chief Keith says that if your travels take you to eastern Arkansas prepare for more significant travel issues.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch in effect from late tonight to Thursday evening (Jan. 11) for expected heavy snow and hard travel conditions.

The watch is in effect for Richland, Ashland, Crawford, Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Erie, Geauga, Lake, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Summit, Stark, Trumbull and Wayne counties. Snow totals will typically be an inch or less for most areas. The rain to ice change happens from 11 AM to 1 PM from Fayetteville and Huntsville to Decatur and Moulton, then from 1 PM to 3 PM over Sand Mountain around Scottsboro, Fort Payne, Guntersville, and Boaz.

Colder air will spread across the area Friday.

According to the advisory, rain will change over to a mix of freezing rain and sleet Friday morning before changing to all snow. The potential for ice accumulation will increase into Friday evening and night.

Blizzard conditions were observed in Grand Forks, North Dakota, Wednesday night, according to the National Weather Service. Travel could also become risky, including during Friday's evening commute. Ice accumulations also could form a light glaze in places.

"We're looking for wide spread 6 to 12 inches of snow for the entire Southern tier and at first it's going to be wet snow, which when combined with the freezing rain and sleet, is going to make for very slick roads".

SATURDAY: Snow showers will linger into early Saturday, with much colder temperatures returning.

From Kentucky to OH, the accumulations will be higher, with most areas seeing anywhere from 4 to 6 inches.

Winter Storm Hunter is now bringing wind-driven snow to the Plains. Temperatures falling through the day with highs ranging from near 30 northwest to around 50 across the plateau. In addition, strong northwest winds may gust to 40 miles per hour just behind the passage of the cold front.

Further south towards the I-40 corridor, a wintry mix will be possible but impacts are expected to be minimal if any at all. Morning drivers will be contending with rain, sleet and some freezing rain.

Saturday night - Mostly cloudy, with a low around 5. Current indications are that a band of 2 to 5 inches of snow, with locally higher amounts, will be possible across portions of southeast Minnesota.
