Snow, ice to slick roads from Chicago to St. Louis, Nashville into Sunday night

A storm will track across portions of the midwestern United States into Sunday night bringing a batch of snow and ice.

Snow will fall across portions of Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee. Enough snow will fall to lead to travel disruptions and delays at local airports.

Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Nashville could receive between 1 and 3 inches of snow during the day on Sunday.

The heaviest snow will focus on Kentucky where 3 to as much as 6 inches of wet snow can fall. This includes Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky.

A nose of warmer air above the surface will lead to an area of freezing rain and sleet from portions of southern Missouri to northern Arkansas and Tennessee. Slick travel will be possible from Springfield, Missouri, toward Little Rock, Arkansas, and eastward toward Nashville.

Nashville will begin as snow and then mix with sleet during the afternoon. Milder air will change everything over to plain rain during Sunday night.

Conditions will improve across the Ohio and Missouri valleys on President's Day while a soaking rain will drench portions of Kentucky and Tennessee. Those traveling to the Gulf Coast states may have to deal with locally severe thunderstorms.

This storm will later intensify and bring significant snow, ice and rain to the East Coast starting on President's Day.

A quick-hitting snow will return across the region on Tuesday.
