Snowfall Forecast

snowcast14:18pm – Blizzard Warnings are in effect for the entire viewing area for Tuesday night into Wednesday afternoon. Light snow will accumulate 2-5 inches by Tuesday morning across Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. Should we end up on the high side of this, our totals for the big event Tuesday night into Wednesday will be upped. Our forecast snowfall totals will put this storm into the top-ten snowstorms in Rockford history. We will be updating snowfall totals for the Rockford metro, comparing them to the historical record as we go through the event.

topten2Roadways will become treacherous tonight, but passable. The timeframe we will discourage travel will be Tuesday 8PM through Wednesday noon. Snowfall rates of 3″/hour will be possible in our southeastern coverage area (Lee and DeKalb). Total snowfall accumulations will be more than 12″ for the Rockford metro, points southeastward with DeKalb nearing 18″ potentially. Lesser amounts, but still worthy of near-record snows for the area from Stockton to Monroe and Janesville where 8-14″ are forecast.

We will have a live chat during all live newscasts of 13News beginning tonight at 5pm. When we are on the air, we will be live here. -ES

    I see carroll co. os borderline 6 to 12 and 12 to 20. Should I expect at least 12 if not more? Just curious.

    Any chance this will track further north and give us more snow?
