Snow Tapering Off…More Snow Monday

Light snow will continue through the morning hours before tapering off this afternoon. Minor accumulations of less than half an inch are expected. The remainder of the afternoon will see temperatures continue to fall into the single digits by this evening making for a cold night ahead.

Confidence continues to increase regarding snowfall amounts for Monday’s system. Snow will overspread the area after the noon hour and continue through Monday evening. Moderate to heavy snow at times will likely accumulate between 4 and 6 inches, with an isolated 7″ amount laying out either in the area or just to the south. The axis of heaviest snowfall continues to shift a bit south as of this morning, more towards I80.

Travel impacts will be significant since the snow will occur during the evening commute. Cold pavement temperatures will allow for snow-covered roads and visibilities will be reduced. Plan on leaving some extra time for your evening commute tomorrow.

More updates throughout the day.

In 2016 he received his B.S. in Meteorology from Northern Illinois University.
