This band of snow will be focused along and south of the I-80 corridor. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

Snow will also fall later Friday in northern OH, western Pennsylvania and western NY. The snow is expected to taper off from west to east by late Friday afternoon.
