Early morning snow makes messy morning commute

A well-organized clipper type system is making for a messy morning commute.

Light and fluffy snowfall totals have ranged from as much at 3.5” in northern counties to as little as a few tenths south of the Chicago.

By this evening a few flurries may remain, but the threat of accumulating lake effect snow will move farther east in northwest Indiana.

Another clipper system is forecast for Tuesday and though it won’t be as organized as this morning’s clipper the potential exists for 1-2” of new snowfall.

After a warm-up Wednesday the region may see a wintry mix Thursday.
