Snow ends, sun comes out, then snow returns

Thursday saw cloudiness and occasional sticking snow over our area – accumulations of 1 to as much as 2 inches in some locations, as low pressure moved from the Ohio Valley north through Indiana. Heavy snow fell downstate, with 8 inches reported near St. Louis – 5.3 inches in Springfield Illinois brought their total for the month to 9.4 inches – making it the snowiest November on record at that site.

Some remnant cloudiness will persist early Friday morning, then the sun will break out only to be dimmed by increasing cloudiness later in the afternoon ahead of the next weather system. Clouds thicken with a good chance of a wet, sticking snow overnight – possibly accumulating to 1-2 inches before ending from the west later in the day Saturday.
