Winter weather advisories continue today for portions of central and northeastern Illinois and much of northern Indiana. Accumulating snowfall of generally 2-4″ can be expected in these areas, with highest amounts likely across northwest Indiana. Snow will end from northwest to southeast during the day, though a few light lake effect snow showers may linger in northwest Indiana this evening.

Light to moderate snow is expected across much of the area tonight and continue into Wednesday morning. Snow could linger into Wednesday afternoon over northwest Indiana. Generally expect 2-5″ of snow near and east of I-55 in Illinois into northwest Indiana. There will probably be a sharp cut off in snowfall totals to the northwest of this area.

After a lull during the overnight hours, a steadier snow will overspread the region through the morning. The heaviest bands of snow across Illinois are expected to affect the area from mid-morning through the afternoon. Be prepared for deteriorating road conditions today due to the snow, and north winds increasing to 15 to 25 mph will result in patchy blowing and drifting snow, especially across rural and open areas.

After a lull in the snowfall overnight, snow will increase in intensity from west to east this morning into this afternoon. The heaviest snowfall is expected from mid morning through this afternoon. Additional snowfall amounts of 2 to 5 inches are expected today with the greatest amounts across northeast Indiana, south central Lower Michigan, and northwest Ohio. In addition to slick and snow covered roads today, north winds will increase to 15 to 25 mph which will create some blowing and drifting snow, especially across rural open areas this afternoon into early this evening. The evening commute tonight will likely be impacted. Some lake effect snow showers are expected to persist into the overnight hours tonight, but additional snow accumulations with the lake effect snow are expected to be less than an inch.

National Discussion and Travel Weather

By Kong of the NWS

  • An energetic storm system will spread rain across much of the South and eastern U.S. with mixed precipitation over New England
  • Heavy snow potential in the Midwest and Great Lakes Tuesday and lasting into Wednesday
  • Strong and gusty winds spreading down the Great Basin toward southern California

A wide variety of weather is expected to occur across the mainland U.S. into mid-week as a couple of significant atmospheric disturbances converge and interact with one another over the national’s heartland. First of all, an intensifying low pressure system is bringing moderate to heavy rainfall across Nebraska into Missouri this morning. Potential exists for flooding to occur in these areas today before the storm moves farther away toward the eastern U.S. tonight. Meanwhile, showers and possibly scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop and expand eastward across the Deep South into the Southeast today ahead of a cold front. By Monday night into Tuesday morning, the rain the expected to move into many places across the Mid-Atlantic and down into the Southeast. Central New England can expect mixed precipitation to arrive Tuesday morning, lasting into Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, another low pressure system is getting organized over the northern High Plains. This system is expected to spread a swath of snow rapidly across the northern Rockies eastward through the northern Plains today, and will begin to interact with the aforementioned low pressure system over the Ohio Valley tonight. This interaction will result in a swath of significant snowfall across the Midwest into the lower to central Great Lakes by Wednesday morning. Snowfall accumulations in these areas may range between 6 to 12 inches with some locally higher totals possible. Winter Storm Watches have been issued for portions of the Midwest ahead of this potential winter storm. Along with the heavy snowfall, winds will pick up in intensity along the northern and western flanks of the storm late Tuesday and should reach peak intensity by Wednesday morning. This would lead to blustery conditions with reduced visibilities in these areas due to the combination of snow and gusty winds. Colder and drier air will conditions filter down the backside of the storm down through much of the Great Plains by Wednesday morning.

The mountain snow across the northwestern U.S. will gradually taper off as a large surface high pressure system settles into the region. Much of the Southwest will be dry and warmer than normal. As the high pressure system begins to push southward, northerly winds are expected to pick up across the Great Basin today behind a dry cold front. By Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, gusty Santa Ana winds could impact southern California as the dry front passes through the region.
