The National Weather Service is sticking with its prediction of 7-12 inches of snow across the southern tier of counties in MI, but now says the winter storm will move through faster than originally anticipated. "Not as much snow is expected but 1-4" can not be ruled out from I-80 to the southern border of the state by late Saturday. "Snow accumulations for east central Iowa (Dubuque, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City areas) will be 4-8" while 3-6" of snow is forecast for the rest of eastern Iowa, including Waterloo, Decorah, Tama and Washington.

In Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the city was prepared for three more rounds of snow through the weekend after crews dealt with 6 to 7 inches overnight Thursday.
