1-2" snow fell over much of the area Saturday, but note two bands of heavier snowfall.

1.  Western Newton through Benton counties with some +2" amounts &.....

2.  Fulton & northern Miami counties with some +2" amounts (the highest reported amount being 3" at Akron).

Also note the band of lighter less than 1" snowfall from near Demotte to Remington to west of Chalmers through Delphi to near Flora.

A nice gaping hole in the low clouds expanded northeastward to part of our viewing area from central Illinois & along the I-70 corridor.  I looked & felt nice & did much to melt snow cover.

However, even with some sun in part of the area, clouds have remained in other parts (especially north & northeast).

A few flurries & isolated snow showers are developing in our northeastern areas.

Visibility has dropped to 5 miles with light snow reported at the Rochester-Fulton County Airport.

You can tell where there was a hole of sun today where temperatures reached 37-40.  It was more like 32-35 elsewhere.

A few flurries/snow showers & some patchy freezing drizzle is possible tonight as low clouds fill back in with approach & passage of shortwave.

Some patchy freezing fog is possible.

For for a few slick spots tonight & tomorrow morning with lows in the upper 20s to around 30.

With lots of clouds, another shortwave (with some Lake Michigan help) with spark some spotty rain/snow/sleet/graupal showers Monday.

Highs will run in the mid to upper 30s with west-northwest to northwest wind 8-15 mph.

A few isolated to spotty snow showers are possible Tuesday with lots of clouds, highs in the mid 30s & west-northwest to northwest wind 6-10 mph (after lows in the upper 20s to around 30 in the morning).

A few isolated to snow (to rain/snow) showers are possible Wednesday-Thursday with lots of clouds & highs in the mid to upper 30s with northeast winds 3-6 mph.

Any ice/snow accumulation Monday-Thursday looks localized & light.

Wave of snow is possible early Friday morning with potential of some very minor accumulation.

Mix to rain to snow is possible next weekend, followed by brief, sharp cool-down.

Winds with the snow Saturday night may gust to 35 mph from the northwest.

Some snow showers may linger into part of Sunday of next weekend.

Some very minor snowfall accumulation is possible here.

Meanwhile, system may reform into significant Nor'Easter on the East Coast with potential blizzard & hurricane-force wind gusts along the coast of Long Island, New York to Rhode Island then Massachusetts to Maine.  It current trends hold, some +20" snowfall accumulations may occur & near bombogenesis could occur.  We will monitor.

A sudden, random, potent, but very brief, very windy (Wind Advisory to High Wind Warning type wind event) warm-up could occur around February 3 (a literal 8-hour spring), followed by brief burst of very minor accumulating snowfall February 4.

Single digit to below 0 lows are possible after that.

As temperatures moderate with some snowfall possible around February 9 & again around February 11.

Thinking bitter cold shot will roar down after that.
