Changes from this time yesterday include a slightly earlier and slightly warmer solution.
A few snow showers will continue through the evening but for most it will be dry and clear overnight, with a widespread frost. So, the far western areas will likely see the least amount of precipitation throughout this entire event.
Outside of the mountains temps will hover in the mid-upper 30s all day. Well, we're saying there's a chance- actually two chances- but neither are expected to produce significant snow.
We are also watching where a lake effect snow band may situate itself Saturday morning.
In Illinois, however, only up to an inch of snow is expected for most, but up to 3 inches could be seen along the lakefront. Accumulation is not expected with this wave of light snowfall, but we are tracking a system for the weekend that could potentially bring minor snow accumulations to Greater Lafayette. There will be several quiet hours on Friday before a Clipper system arrives late Friday into Saturday morning. As of now it is unclear if any rain will mix with the snow but with temperatures above freezing, it's possible.
