Make It Stop! More Spring Snow Coming

We woke up Wednesday to a light coating of snow but heavier snow may fall by Friday morning. Forecast models are shifting the axis of heavier snowfall further north and it is possible some areas south of the city may see several inches of snow. The snow would begin later Thursday and linger into the morning hours on Friday.

There still is some uncertainty on exactly where that swath of heavier snow will lay out. An indication of that uncertainty is shown in the model runs of accumulated snowfall for this storm. The range of snow forecast for O'Hare is anything from 2 to 8 inches. Stay tuned because these numbers will no doubt change.

A zoomed in view of the GFS snowfall forecast shows a dusting of snow near the Wisconsin state line to more than a half a foot of snow in Kankakee. Just a slight shift either north or south with the storm's track will make a huge difference in how much snow will fall in your neighborhood.

Once we get through the snow there is some glimmers of hope that real spring may return. Highs this weekend will be near 60°. Fast forward to a week from this Saturday and the GFS model has us soaring into the 70s. Something to keep in mind while you are possibly shoveling snow Friday morning.
