Ice, snow could cause driving issues across Midwest

Updated Feb 6, 2019

Travel through the north-central states — from Michigan to Nebraska — is expected to become difficult tonight through Thursday. Problems begin with an ice storm over much of that region followed by as much as a foot of snow in spots.

AccuWeather said:

“The winter weather will move through in two waves, with the first set to create slippery travel along Interstate 80 between the I-35 and I-75 corridor.

“Travel along a swath from Wichita, Kansas; to Kansas City, Missouri; Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Chicago; Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Detroit can be dicey into Tuesday night, with untreated roads likely to be slippery.”

Snow is expected to add to the travel trauma Wednesday and Thursday from Michigan’s Upper Penninsula to western Nebraska and South Dakota.

As a result of the ice and snow, AccuWeather warns of ice along Interstate 80 between I-35 and I-75, and snow on parts of interstates 29, 35, 80, 90 and 94. Watch out for heavy snow and high winds at times.
