Periods of snow are expected overnight to Saturday.
It should be mainly in the north half for a while & then spread southeastward.
Highs will run in the 20s Saturday with brisk north winds to 24 mph.
1-3" is expected Fowler to Monticello to Logansport to Peru & northwestward with less than 1" south of that line.
Snow is likely later Sunday. After some clearing Saturday night & lows near 0 to 6 & wind chills -20 to -10, teens to 20 are expected Sunday.
This storm looks to have two main waves of snow with it:
1. Sunday late to Monday AM
2. Monday late to Monday night
A total of 4-8" with isolated +8" amounts of snowfall is expected area-wide with highs amounts in our southern areas.
Gusty northeast to north, then north-northwest winds to 35 mph will lead to blowing & drifting with very difficult travel Sunday evening-night-Monday AM & then again Monday late to night-time hours & Tuesday AM.
More snow & gusty winds are possible Thursday. Some ice is possible in the southeastern areas.
Big warm-up with rain & flooding risk should occur February 24-28 time frame after fog, drizzle & light rain with gray weather next weekend as much warmer air overrides the snow pack.
There will be water tied up in the snow pack, then bring sudden warmth with potential of 1-2" rainfall & the stage is set for flash flooding issues & substantial rises in rivers.
We will monitor, as tweaks to this forecast are expected, but it does bear watching. It looks warm enough to have just plain rain as far north as northwest as the UP of Michigan & over the southwestern half of Ontario.
A 1.5-week drier stretch should follow.
Still looks like above normal temperatures will dominate through early March, but lingering effects of SSWE may bring a random cold shot in for brief time quite a bit below normal temperature-wise.
