(NEW YORK) — Snowstorms are expected in many parts of the country this weekend, posing hazardous driving conditions for millions of motorists.

On Thursday, slippery roads and low visibility caused multi-vehicle pileups on interstate highways in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Nevada.

Lake effect snow continues to slam the Great Lakes region. In Oswego, New York, residents witnessed a unique weather phenomenon late Thursday: a snowstorm that produces lightning.
