Heavy, wet snow to blanket most of the area overnight into Saturday

Rain will change to all snow late Saturday afternoon and become moderate intensity at times Saturday evening.

Winds: Friday night will have wind gusts near 30 miles per hour in Wisconsin, perhaps higher in Minnesota closer to the storm's center.

At the same time, dry easterly winds over much of southern Wisconsin will block the eastward edge of the snow, resulting in a sharp cut-off from west to east over southwestern and southern Wisconsin.

There are three types of winter warnings issued by the National Weather Service: watches, warnings and advisories. Meanwhile, North Dakota is expected to see some 5 to 8 inches of snow, with localized amounts up to 10 inches.

A spring nor'easter targeted the Northeast on Wednesday with strong winds and a foot or more of snow expected in some parts of the region.

A late season snowstorm will impact parts of eastern Iowa and northwestern IL tonight into Saturday.

More than 400 flights have been canceled Thursday in and out of Newark Liberty International and New York's LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International airports, according to FlightAware, a Houston-based tracking service.

The fourth nor'easter in three weeks slammed the Island later than expected, continuing to dump snow early Thursday and causing unsafe conditions.
