CHICAGO — Holiday travelers in the Midwest are bracing for snow and ice from a storm that's expected to deliver a rare white Christmas to Nashville before rolling into the Northeast.

Several inches of snow were expected across the heartland on Friday, including up to 8 inches in Iowa and 6 inches in Illinois. Winter weather advisories were posted from North Dakota into Kentucky, with forecasters warning drivers of snow-covered roads and limited visibility.

The storm was expected to crawl south into Tennessee on Saturday, then possibly move north on Sunday.

Fair weather helped make the holiday sojourn a not-so-painful experience in much of the country Thursday, when the most densely populated parts of the county got a break from the weather. Travelers said roads and airports were congested but manageable.
