The Storm Prediction Center usually issues short term forecasts during summer-time severe weather.

Great Falls is now expected to only pick up 1-3 inches of snow through Friday. Since 1884, the city has had only nine days when 12 or more inches of snow fell.

Tonight there's a 90 percent chance of 2 inches of new snow accumulation after 7 p.m. Moisture moving north and overrunning the front puts Mid-Michigan in the prime position to see steady snow for a 24 to 30 hour period starting late Thursday night through Friday evening.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Sioux City, which goes into effect at 3 p.m. Thursday afternoon and is set to expire at 6 a.m. Friday.

The same storm system has killed several people in accidents in the Midwest since Monday, including six in Iowa, two in Missouri and one in Montana, local media in those states reported. The northern edge of heavy snow through 10 a.m. could come up to the Grand Rapids, Lansing and Flint areas.

Gino Izzi, meteorologist with the National Weather Service forecast office in Romeoville, said it will be a standard winter storm.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the city was gearing up for three more rounds of snow through the weekend. Diminishing winds will keep our wind chill values in the single digits through the overnight. Much of northern IL had seen between 8 and 12 inches of snow by Friday afternoon, CNN meteorologist Taylor Ward said. Temperatures will be in the 20s and expect roads to be snowpacked and slippery. The northern and western suburbs have seen slightly more snow, but the tallies are still lower than normal. As the arctic air moves south, temperatures will drop significantly, and any snow or ice that has melted will re-freeze, then snow will fall on top of that.

The Illinois Department of Transportation tweeted road conditions were deteriorating Thursday night across the top of the state as the system neared Chicago.
