Snowy Weekend

We are heading into the weekend, and once again, snow is the main focus in the forecast. We have two rounds to contend with this time around. Models have been in disagreement to this point in terms of totals, but the timing has been locked down pretty well. Round one makes its way here tonight into very early tomorrow morning. This initial system is moisture starved, so accumulation will be fairly minimal (roughly a dusting to an inch). Our second system, however, has the potential to bring us several inches of accumulation. Tomorrow morning and the first part of the afternoon will be cloudy, but snow free. As we push late into the day, the chance for snow quickly increases. This round will last from late tomorrow into early Sunday afternoon. We can expect an additional 3-5″, which will put our totals in the ballpark of 4-6″ for the weekend, with a few outliers slightly above that. The best chances for the heavier totals will be down near I88 (Dixon, Rochelle, DeKalb). As I mentioned, model output for totals has been in disagreement today, so these numbers could change slightly as we head into tomorrow morning, but the timing will remain the same. – Greg snow
