FIRST ALERT: slippery commute today, another storm headed toward the Heartland

Good morning, it’s Thursday, January 21, 2016.

Sleet, freezing rain and light snow will make roads in parts of the Heartland slippery for the morning commute. This afternoon expect it to be cloudy and quiet. FIRST ALERT: a bigger winter storm system will pass by or through the Heartland tonight into tomorrow, with high winds and heavy snow. Meteorologist Brian Alworth says depending on the track of the storm parts of the Heartland could get anywhere from 1-to-18 inches of snow.

This storm has much of the country east of the Heartland buckling down and getting ready.
