Winter Is Coming

Nov 20, 2015

Northern Illinois could see 10 inches of snow as the first wintry storm of the season comes into the state.  
 The National Weather Service says a mix of rain and snow Friday evening will turn to snow on Saturday. Snowfall totals will be as high as 8 to 10 inches across north-central Illinois. The area near Interstate 80 is forecast to see 3 to 6 inches and the shores of Lake Michigan should see 2 to 5 inches.  Central Illinois including the WGLT listening area will see 1 to 3 inches.

Forecasters say warm ground temperatures will keep snow from accumulating at first but increasing snowfall rates overnight will mean accumulations on Saturday.  

A winter storm warning is in effect for northern Illinois and winter weather advisory for central Illinois from the western border through Peoria and up to Joliet.
