The main band of snow will taper off through the middle of the day with snow showers, flurries, drizzle continuing into the afternoon. Most reports from overnight snowfall have been 1" to 3.5" with the heaviest in the south. We could see another inch or so before the end of the day as more snow showers track through this afternoon.
The low will track into Lake Michigan, which keeps a lot of moisture over us through Saturday. Most of tonight into Saturday morning will have flurries and a few snow showers. The heaviest will be in the far eastern part of the state and will add very little to what we will have on the ground. If you are traveling east of the Mississippi River, they will have accumulations and travel will be impacted.
Our weather pattern will keep us with very little sunshine for the next several days. We remain mainly cloudy Sunday through Tuesday. A few flurries may fall on Sunday as our current system very slowly tracks through the Great Lakes region.
Our next system will hold off until Wednesday and Thursday with a chance of snow... although computer models are not in agreement on placement of the system, so we may end up dry or with only flurries.
