After the wintry mess, this is where we go from here.......

Given that there was much more in the way of sleet & freezing rain over the area than snow, snowfall totals were cut.  There were reports of ice area-wide, both sleet & freezing rain, even in our far northwestern areas.  Of the 0.5" sleet, trace of freezing rain & 0.1" of snow near the television station, it all melted to 0.27", which would be 2.7" of snow (if it would have been all snow in a traditional 10:1 ratio).

The storm appeared to wobble a bit to the northwest, keeping main deformation zone of snow over Illinois.  Nonetheless, it was a rough morning for driving.

Areas of black ice will develop after 5 p.m. as temperatures drop below freezing.  Also there may still be a few patches of light snow & freezing drizzle around before it tapers tonight.

A huge thanks to all NWS COOP, CoCoRAHs & WLFI spotters for your snow/ice totals!

However, as warm front drifts northeast through viewing area after 2 a.m., some patchy freezing drizzle & snow grains may develop.  This may result in some enhancement to icy spots Friday morning.  Lows tonight will drop & level off in the upper 20s.

Soundings show subtle lift & saturation for the drizzle & some snow grains.

This will be followed by mostly cloudy to cloudy skies Friday with light fog/haze & highs 38-42.

Alberta clipper & cold front will pass Saturday PM-night.  A few rain/snow showers are possible Saturday PM, followed by some scattered snow showers Saturday evening-night.  Any accumulation than can occur will be light.  This would tend to pass during the Purdue game with temperatures in the 30s.

A few snow showers are possible Sunday with partly to mostly cloudy skies & highs in the 30s after 20s in the morning.
