Several of the states expecting the heaviest snowfall are now issuing storm warnings, including in Ohio, Michigan, Northern Indiana, Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin, and Eastern Iowa, and thousands of flights have been canceled.

Some courts and government offices shut down, joining schools in the path of the storm that closed for the day in Illinois, Indiana and MI.

Snow from a winter storm moving across the Great Lakes is leaving roads treacherous, closing schools and cancelling hundreds of flights across the upper Midwest. Some of the highest totals are forecast in the Chicago area, northern in and southern MI.

Schools and travel saw major impacts across the Midwest on Friday as Winter Storm Mateo dumped inches of snow across a large section of the nation's heartland. Still, the city experienced dozens of auto crashes Thursday evening and early Friday. People should stay off the roads if possible, but if they drive they should expect delays and hazardous conditions.

The storm is expected to continue bringing snow into Northern Pennsylvania, Upstate New York, Eastern Iowa, the Northern Rockies, Montana, Wyoming, Western South Dakota, and Nebraska throughout Friday night, making for tricky Saturday morning commutes in Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland, and Buffalo, according to the Weather Channel's forecast. Chicago was forecast to receive as much as 14 inches (35 centimeters) of snow with Detroit expecting up to 9 inches (23 centimeters).

The storm prompted Chicago officials to close the city's public schools to about 390,000 students Friday.

Thousands of children got a snow day after school districts in Chicago, Detroit and Milwaukee canceled classes.

"Periods of heavy snow will arrive into Friday across the southern Great Lakes", said weather.com meteorologist Jonathan Belles.
