Some areas could see as much as two feet of snow. The snow will continue into Friday over parts of the Upper Midwest and Ontario, Canada.

It's a White Christmas on the western slope of Colorado with scattered snow showers. The weather service is expecting only light snow accumulation of about an inch. Speicher said once wind gusts reach full force driving will become incredibly hard. Kalin says it could deliver more than eight inches of snow to some locations.

Gusty winds may cause blowing and drifting mainly through Thursday night but also extending into Friday.

According to the National Weather Service, Northland snow totals as of noon generally ranged from 18 inches near Finland to 10 inches near Silver Bay to about 1.5 inches east of Superior, where some of the precipitation fell as rain.

Another reason behind the disaster could be a spewing of molten lava that come off the volcano after an eruption, experts said. The geophysics agency said the volcano erupted 24 minutes before the tsunami hit the islands, according to the AP.

According to The Weather Channel, Winter Storm Eboni - which started in California earlier this week with wind gusts of up to 65 miles per hour - moved into the Great Plains on Wednesday and will hit the upper Midwest and New England by Friday. Actual temperatures will fall into the 20s, teens and single digits in some areas. Highs will top out in the low-40s, but the temps will oddly continue to rise as we head through the night.

For those still digging out, Sunday could provide a high of 27 degrees beneath partly cloudy skies before colder conditions return for year's end.

Rain fell for much of the day Wednesday in Hastings, and residents are being warned to prepare for wet roads to freeze overnight. Morning highs will will be in the 40s before falling in the low-30s by late afternoon.

Today's storm is expected to wrap up in the late afternoon or early evening, Mangels said. This is the second winter weather system of the season that is producing precipitation amounts nearly unheard of for this time of year.
