Snow Round 1: The Appetizer

We will have to deal with two main rounds of snow this weekend. The first round of light snow will push through northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin overnight. This round will be the lesser of the two: the appetizer to the main course.

Friday Night

Snowfall totals will be on the light side, generally around 1 inch.  A few spots near and north of the Illinois-Wisconsin state line may see an inch and a half.  The chance for snow will wind down before sunrise Saturday, although it will remain cloudy. Temperatures will fall through the 20s and into the middle teens by Saturday morning.
