The Weather Channel is warning that a huge swath of the Ohio Valley, Mid-Atlantic, and New England will get hit later today with more ice, snow, and eventual icy-snowy-rain (that's a real meteorological term, we swear).
Great Falls is now expected to only pick up 1-3 inches of snow through Friday.
For the rest of Friday evening, there will be some snow showers around.
An occasional flurry will be possible Thursday, however, the snow chances are going to be very minimal during the daytime hours.
Now that Friday's winter storm has mercifully moved on, we're turning our attention to even more snow for the weekend. The warning is in effect for Cook, DuPage, Lake, Will, Boone, De Kalb, Grundy, Kane, Kendall, La Salle, Lee McHenry Ogle and Winnebago counties in IL and Lake and Porter counties in IN and Kenosha County in Wisconsin until 9 p.m. Friday.
A Winter Storm Warning is set to go into effect at 6 p.m. Thursday for most of the Chicago area. The advisory, according to NWS, "means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties".

A big one could be a demand to cease the U.S. -South Korean war games that North Korea claims are preparation for invasion. But the North was welcomed with open arms to what South Korean President Moon Jae-in called "Olympic games of peace".
"Snowfall amounts look to be in the 4-7" range in the Lansing area with lesser amounts north in Clinton, Ionia and Shiawassee Counties.
The latest winter storm is fueled by an impulse of energy flowing through a broad southward dip in the jet stream - lifting moist air over a surface frontal system.
National Weather Service meteorologist Brian Hurley said on Friday that the system was likely to drop another four or five inches (10 or 12.5 cm) of snow on the Midwest as it headed east toward New England. The heavy snow is forecast to move into upstate NY and New England by early Saturday.
In the Calgary area, the agency is forecasting 25 to 35 centimetres of snow while some areas in the mountain parks and the Foothills could get as much as 50 cm. Diminishing winds will keep our wind chill values in the single digits through the overnight. By the afternoon, skies will be partly sunny and temperatures will reach into the lower 20s.
Snow coming in later Thursday and continuing Friday could dump 2 to 3 inches of snow in Madison, with higher amounts in the 4 to 6 inch range along the state line, and up to a foot of snow is possible across northern IL.
