 A winter storm was forecast to dump up to 8 inches of snow on much of the Upper Midwest Saturday, disrupting travel in Chicago after giving many areas their first major accumulation of the season, NBC News reported.

Winter weather advisories were posted for much of Lower Michigan and far northern Indiana, including Detroit, Grand Rapids and Lansing, the Weather Channel reported.

Parts of the Sioux City, South Dakota metro area picked up over a foot of snow Friday from a band of weather that spread across northern Iowa and Illinois overnight.

The storm system was moving east and will last through Saturday evening, when it tails through Michigan, according to Richard Otto, lead forecaster at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Weather Prediction Center.
