At this point, it appears snow will arrive Saturday afternoon with most of the snow falling before 2 a.m. on Sunday morning. The overnight low is expected to be near 24, with another 1 to 2 inches of snow possible. However, a glaze of ice is also possible.

A Winter Storm Watch will be in effect starting Friday evening.

Airline passengers in the central US from Denver to St. Louis, Cincinnati and Chicago can expect direct impacts due to snow with flight delays, changes and cancellations. Although, flurries remain, roads are dry and no accumulation expected.

As the system moves east toward the southeastern U.S. snow will spread into central IL tonight and continue through the day Saturday. To the south, snow may mix in with sleet which could slightly lower accumulations in that area. It would be among the city's 10 greatest snowstorms of all time if that happens.

Saturday: Snow continuing, tapering by the afternoon.

"So far, this season, we have only seen.9" of snow, running over 9" below average.

Chicago, Detroit and Cleveland will be on the northern edge of the storm. It would be the most snow the city has had in a single storm since 2014 when a January blizzard dumped 10.8 inches. Slippery road conditions are expected.
