Sunday System to bring Light Accumulations

Before we get a break from our winter-like pattern next week we’ll be looking another clipper-type storm system that will bring some accumulating snow by Sunday evening.

Right now the snow looks to begin around 6pm and last through the overnight hours into Monday morning, ending around 8am. Prior to ending the snow could actually mix with rain.

At this time accumulations look light, limited to grassy and elevated surfaces. Sunshine today combined with temperatures above-freezing for much of Sunday should help keep pavement temperatures above-freezing. The snow is not expected to be heavy at any point, so travel should not be significantly impacted.

Whatever snow does fall will quickly vanish once again, especially by Tuesday as temperatures head for the 50s.

Andrew Stutzke was born and raised in beautiful Sterling, Illinois. As a young child, he was continually fascinated by the weather, especially thunderstorms. Often times he could be found glued to the television watching The Weather Channel. Upon entering high school it was clear what his area of study would be once he started college. After graduating from Sterling High School in 2004, he attended Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon, Illinois where he received his Associate of Science degree in 2010. In 2016 he received his B.S. in Meteorology from Northern Illinois University.

Andrew is currently the Friday and Saturday evening meteorologist at WIFR-TV in Rockford, IL.

In his spare time, Andrew enjoys listening to the latest Alt-Rock and Indie music, storm spotting, walking the many paths around the area, and spending time with family.
