"The Friday morning rush is gonna be trouble", National Weather Service meteorologist Charles Mott had told the Chicago Tribune. Another winter storm is forecast to paste the Midwest with heavy snow on Thursday and Friday. We have HIGH CONFIDENCE in snow falling on Saturday (afternoon/evening) and bitterly cold weather.

A half-inch of snow overnight is making for treacherous driving once again in the Madison area, and the worst is yet to come. Total snow accumulations of 4 to 7 inches are expected. Snow continues to fall Thursday night and into Friday morning before tapering off from west to east around noon.

The watch is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Thursday and last until 6 p.m. Friday, although flurries will be possible throughout Thursday afternoon leading up to the evening's snowfall.

Winter storm warnings were issued by the National Weather Service for parts of northwest OH, southern Lower Michigan, northern IN, northern IL, southern Wisconsin and eastern Iowa, where show is expected to be the heaviest. Tomorrow, the snow will be heaviest in the morning, making the commute to work hard.

Some winter weather this way comes.


The latest winter storm is fueled by an impulse of energy flowing through a broad southward dip in the jet stream - lifting moist air over a surface frontal system.

The heaviest snow will be in a relatively narrow band across mainly northern IL and southern MI.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the city was gearing up for three more rounds of snow through the weekend. Wind chill values may drop down to -5° at times early Thursday morning.

The track of the storm will bring the heaviest snow amounts to northern IL, with amounts rapidly decreasing as it moves north. "Check local Department of Transportation information services for the latest road conditions".

The snowstorm, which will bring a combination of ice, snow, and freezing rain throughout several states and the Great Lakes, is already leaving various states to deal with inclement weather and risky commutes.
