Snow ends early, cold temps move into region: Forecast

The latest winter storm to hit the region should taper as the morning wears on, but by the time it ends 2-6″ of heavy, wet snow is expected to blanket the region.

The fresh snow will make for a messy morning commute, but we should see improvement as the day goes on.

Colder air will move into the region with temperatures falling through the 20s even as the cloud cover decreases.

Strong north winds will make it feel even colder.

Clearing skies and decreasing winds will allow temperatures to fall to 10-15 degrees overnight.

The cold start will be part of a chilly Thursday when despite strengthening west/southwest winds and partly sunny skies, temperatures will only top out in the upper 30s.

    I think Tom Skilling is the most accurate weather forecaster but His forecasting is way too long. On the other channels there is discord between Jerry Taft and Brant Miller. Taft took a cheap shot at Miller for Miller's wild forecast for Wednesday. Jerry Taft is no saint either because I remember a few years ago when He said We were going to get 8 inches of snow overnight, We did not get any at all and the next day Kathy Brock asked Jerry Taft this question. " Jerry what happened to the 8 inches You promised me last night? After a short pause He said it went somewhere else. This is a true story and WLS should have tapes of that day. Jerry and Brant and many other forecasters miss forecasts. It is not a perfect science.
