Another chance for snow arrives on Saturday!

The active winter weather pattern continues into the weekend.  Not only will Saturday feature subzero wind chills throughout the day, but there is a decent chance for some snow close to the IL/WI border.  

A clipper system will race across the Midwest on Saturday.  Most of the accumulation will remain throughout northern Illinois; however, we do expect the chance for some accumulation across our southern counties.

This is not a going to be a heavy wet snow.  Most areas will remain well below 2".  As you can see, the metro area could measure up to 1" of snow.  Areas near the IL/WI border could reach 2" of snow.  Many of our northern counties will completely miss out.  There should be a very tight gradient.

The snow is forecast by the late afternoon into the evening before clearing out.  Temperatures will drop below 0 for Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Areas that see snow will deal with more slick roads with the very cold air.
