Winter Weather Advisory Saturday late afternoon to Sunday evening.
Winter Weather Advisory Saturday late afternoon to Sunday evening. A quick shot of very light snow is likely late this evening, bringing a possible dusting mainly north of I-80. Another system will affect the region Saturday evening through Sunday with light snow. During late Saturday night into Sunday morning, some of this snow may be moderate intensity at times. Accumulation will occur, especially over northeast Illinois and northwest Indiana.
With the extended forecast calling for a cycle of snow during weekend and into next week, we are pressing two advisory buttons now! The CLC (Checkout Line Congestion) and the HHHH (Hostess Ho Ho Hoarders) advisory. Remember there is a cause and effect here. The HHHHs move into the grocery stores causing CLCs. Remember the safety rules, no eye contact and keep all sweets and potato chips in a hard to reach place in your shopping basket. If they strike up a conversation while in line, just agree with everything by smiling and nodding your head occasionally . At all cost avoid politics! Be safe!

The lack of snow over northern IL thus far this winter has been noteworthy, but that could be about to change. A parade of storm systems over the Pacific will ride the jet stream into the northern and eastern U.S. this weekend into next week. These systems will be fast on each other’s heels, with only about a 24 to 36 hour break in between systems. It is too soon to say how many of these systems will directly impact northern IL and northwest IN, but there does appear to be multiple opportunities for snow this weekend through next week.
The advertised active winter weather pattern appears likely to produce another round of accumulating snow Monday afternoon through Monday evening. It’s becoming increasingly likely that the Monday PM commute will be impacted by snow for at least portions of the local area. Fast on the heels of the Monday system, we’re tracking the potential for a larger storm system to bring accumulating snow to parts of Illinois and Indiana Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday night. There is plenty of uncertainty on the track of this storm system and how much, if any, of the local area will be affected, so it is too early to say how much snow, if any, will occur within the local area. Finally, additional rounds of snow are possible in the Wednesday night-Friday timeframe.
