National Weather Discussion

  • Light to moderate snow expected for the Great Lakes and interior Northeast
  • Precipitation continues in the Northwest through the weekend with high winds likely across the Northern/Central High Plains

An upper-level trough will move across the eastern U.S. today into tonight, along with a couple of cold fronts at the surface. Ahead of these features, precipitation will continue through the day for portions of the Eastern Seaboard. Light rain is expected for portions of the Mid-Atlantic, Carolinas, and Southeast. Additionally, some light to moderate snow will
spread across portions of the Ohio Valley today and into the interior Northeast on the backside of a strengthening surface low. Snowfall amounts are forecast to be 4 inches to locally higher than 6 inches in the Lower Great Lakes to the interior Northeast, with upslope flow helping cause snow in the Central Appalachians as well. By Sunday, another low system is expected to bring snow to the Upper Great Lakes region, which will then spread into parts of the Northeast again.

In the West, a strong frontal system is forecast to move quickly southeastward across the Rockies and Great Basin today. This will lead to heavy higher elevation snow in the Cascades, with snow in the Northern Rockies as well. Lower elevations and coastal portions of the Northwest should remain rain. High winds are also likely, and High Wind Watches and
Warnings as well as Wind Advisories are currently in place for portions of the Pacific Northwest and the Northern and Central High Plains. More rounds of precipitation are possible in the Pacific Northwest by Sunday as another front moves through.

Temperatures today will be around or above average in most locations. Multiple record high minimum temperatures could be set across the Eastern Seaboard this morning, with a few record high maximum temperatures in jeopardy in Florida. Behind a relatively strong cold front, temperatures will switch to below average in Florida on Sunday, with temperatures back to near average across much of the Eastern Seaboard.

Milwaukee

Cloudy and cool today with highs around freezing. Windy conditions are expected for Sunday with mild temps. A brief rain/snow mix is possible in the morning. Conditions stay mild for Monday but another round of wind and snow chances if forecast for Tuesday.

Chicago

The accumulating snow overnight over portions of northern and central Illinois has caused some snow or slush covered roads. Accumulating snow showers in portions of northwest Indiana may also cause slick road conditions in spots there. If you will be out driving early this morning, check the road conditions before departing. Leave plenty of time to reach your destination. When driving, reduce your speed and increase following distance between you and other vehicles.

Radar Update: Area of light snowfall with embedded moderate snowfall pushing into western counties. Expect visibility as low as 1 mile within moderate snowfall. Roads will become wet and a slush could develop west of HWY 31 on untreated roads. Slow down and increase following distance if traveling this morning..
The first of two clipper systems is currently moving across the area this morning. Snow will spread across the area throughout the morning hours. While amounts are expected to be fairly light across the NW OH, SE Lower MI and northeast IN, amounts up to one inch are possible across NW IN. Snow ends across the area this evening as temperatures drop into the mid-20s overnight. The second clipper system will bring breezy west winds with gusts up to 35 mph. High wave action on Lake Michigan Sunday will result in beach erosion for Berrien and LaPorte Counties. There will also be a chance for a rain/snow mix for locations north of HWY 30 Sunday afternoon, but little to no accumulation is expected.
