First Shovel Session?

Undoubtedly, a pronounced area of low pressure will develop and move into the Ohio Valley region by Sunday. There should be plenty of cold air wrapped into this system to keep it all as snow across the Stateline. At this point, the intensity of the snow bands is undetermined, but the forecast of 1-3″ that Eric raised last night seems reasonable. The heaviest snow should fall closer to the low which should setup near Cincinnati, Ohio. The higher totals over our area will be tallied near Dekalb, Sycamore, and Rochelle with the lower totals being witnessed around Galena, Freeport, and Monroe.

We’ve seen optimal driving conditions for the majority of this holiday weekend, but it appears the tail end of the festivities may be hampered by this snowmaker. If you have travel plans on Sunday, you should keep close tabs on the Weather Blog as this situation becomes clearer on Saturday. -ADAM

    Seems to me (if I recall) we had big snowstorms on Dec. 1 both of the last 2 years. What’s up with that? Does the Big Guy Upstairs have something against Dec. 1????

    Even though my memory is vague, I do know that in 2006 we did have that huge snowstorm, I tried to go to work but when I stopped in the middle of our road, I got stuck and just went in a called in to work and told them I couldnt make it. I don’t remember a big snowstorm december 1st of last year. I do remember in 06 though that 2 or 3 weeks later, that snow we had was gone.
