Chicago

After a quiet Tuesday with highs in the 30s across the area, unsettled weather returns on Wednesday afternoon as the next weather system approaches the area. Snow is looking more likely by later Wednesday afternoon/early evening through Thursday morning. This system looks like it could produce a few inches in parts of the area. Impacts are possible for both the Wednesday evening and Thursday morning commutes. There is still uncertainty with the final track and strength of the system, so stay tuned for future updates as this event gets closer. Cold air will surge into the area on Thursday. Winds will be breezy at times on Thursday resulting in below zero wind chills Thursday afternoon into the evening and into Friday morning. The gusty winds could result in lakeshore flooding along the northwest Indiana shore. Also the colder air may result in ice jam flooding

Michiana

While conditions will be quiet through tonight, snow chances will increase Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night with widespread snow expected. Presently, 3 to 5 inches of snow is possible, but the potential for warmer temperatures Weds afternoon and evening as well as some rain mixing in, especially southeast of US-24, may keep overall amounts lower than shown in the graphic. By late Wednesday night temperatures will fall below freezing and continue to fall through the day Thursday. This is when travel impacts may be seen. In addition, more snow chances will linger through Thursday and Thursday night due mainly to lake effect snow showers. By Friday morning, overnight lows will be in the single digits above zero with wind chills likely 5 to maybe 15 below zero in some spots. Stay tuned to later forecasts and updated snow totals.

National Discussion and Travel Weather

By Campbell of the NWS

  • A Slight Risk of excessive rainfall has been issued for eastern Texas, northern Louisiana, southern Arkansas, northern Georgia and the western Carolinas through Wednesday morning
  • Heavy snow is possible over parts of the Southern/Central Rockies
  • Another round of heavy rain to enter the Lower Mississippi and Tennessee valleys on Wednesday, with light-to-moderate snow possible over portions of the Midwest and Ohio Valley

Much of the area from the south-central U.S. to the Southern and Central Appalachian region will have scattered to widespread rain through at least A vast majority of the southern tier of the U.S. will have scattered to widespread rain and snow over the next few days. As a sprawling frontal boundary slowly moves eastward, pooling Gulf moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will fuel nearly continuous convection over this region. This environment will also be conducive for periods of moderate to heavy rainfall, especially over areas that have had several inches of rain in the past 1-2 weeks. With soils near saturation and more rain on the way, widespread flooding concerns will persist across the Gulf states and into the Appalachian region.

Further west, heavy snow will be possible across portions of the Southern Rockies and particularly much of New Mexico through Wednesday morning with amounts of 6 to 12 inches are forecast. Local maximums in the highest terrain in Colorado and New Mexico may exceed 1 foot. Lower elevations across the Texas Panhandle and southwest Oklahoma could also see snow as the system slowly exits into the Southern Plains Tuesday.

This aforementioned system will be responsible for the next round of heavy rain across the Lower Mississippi and Tennessee valleys on Wednesday. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches will be possible from northeast Texas to western Tennessee. Flash flooding will be a concern here once again due to the saturated ground and swollen streams/rivers. On the northern edge of the precipitation shield, snow will be possible from the Midwest to the Ohio Valley Wednesday and Wednesday night. Further north a strong cold front is forecast to enter the Northern Plains tonight and bring gusty winds, snow showers, and temperatures 10 to 20 degrees below average to the region.
