Narrowing Down the Next Storm

The graphic to the left is the positioning of the snowmaker estimated around 6am Friday. This is a sample from the GFS model. This storm system appears as though it will be sweeping to the south of us. It will start this afternoon over the panhandle of Texas, and move into Arkansas before it heads towards the New England area. As I talked about last night, the snowfall with this one is going to align a bit differently than usual. Areas southeast of Rockford such as Marengo, DeKalb, and Sycamore stand a chance at several inches of snow. On the other hand, areas northwest of Rockford such as Monroe, Freeport, and Stockton probably will see significantly less snowfall. The impacts will be felt between noon Thursday and noon Friday with the heaviest snow flying late Thursday night and early Friday morning (7pm – 7am).

Remember the snowstorm that hit 6 weeks ago on December 15th? That storm system took a very similar path and ended up dumping 3 to 6 inches of snow on our area. For those in need of some numbers, Eric will have the specific numbers for tomorrow’s snowstorm on the Blog later this afternoon. -ADAM
