While parts of Montana, North and South Dakota, Minnesota and northern Wisconsin are on the trailing edge of a winter storm which brought several inches (even feet) of snow, parts of the southern Plains and Ohio Valley are bracing for an icy, snowy mess on Thursday and Friday. Sandwiched right in between, you may have guessed, is northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.
Dry weather is on tap for the next few days. Chilly temperatures are expected for at least the next 7 to 10 days, including upper teens for highs on Friday and Saturday in many backyards. But a system progged to develop over the southern Plains late Saturday will push through the Stateline region late Sunday into early Monday. Accumulating snowfall is a possibility with this system.
Although it is still several days away with many variables still not in place, there are indications that we might need to bring out our shovels. Two or three inches of snow seems reasonable at this time. Things are bound to change so we will keep you up-to-date with the latest information.
