Snowfall totals in Wisconsin, Illinois inches beyond what was expected; Michigan up next.

The National Weather Service said the snow, which first fell in South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa on Friday, would continue in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan before heading northeast into Canada late Saturday.
