Band of wet snow south of Interstate-80 this Sunday morning
Update 11:45AM CDT…
Snow has moved off to the east
Low pressure and the associated band of snow have moved off to the east into Indiana, leaving behind a wide band of 1 to 5-inches of snow that laid out to the north of the low center, extending from a little west of Moline/Davenport in Iowa all the way across Illinois into Indiana – generally along and south of Interstate-80. Greatest snow depth reported was 5-inches at Princeton in Bureau County Illinois, but there were many reports of 3 to 4-inches+. In the Chicago area 4.5-inches was on the ground at Ottawa and 4.2-inches in Morris and Coal City. On the northern fringe, Joliet had 2.5-inches snow cover early this morning.
Following are some snow depth reports this morning:
As a weak center of low pressure moves east through central Illinois into central Indiana this Sunday morning, a band of wet snow is laying out across the southern portion of the Chicago area, south of Interstate-80. Farther south, the precipitation changes over to rain. Accumulations of 1 to as much as 3-inches may occur in this snow band, so if you are driving south of Interstate-80 this morning, be aware that conditions may become slick and travel slowed. Snow will gradually end from the west this morning.
