Hail To The Chief: Snow Ready To Move In

James Zahara Weather Blog

I’m an official blogger!  WOW!  I hope I don’t disappoint.  Lets talk about this snow coming tomorrow .

System will continue its course to our southeast which places us on the deformation or accumulating snow zone I like to call it.  My concern is how the pressure begins to slowly rise once it makes its way into Illinois as it recycles itself.  However, the recycling period was short-lived not deviating from it path.  In fact, it bump a touch northward.

Here’s my take on the breakdown of snowfall from south to north by early Wednesday morning.

SOUTH.  Including such cities as Mount Pleasant, Burlington, Macomb, Galesburg & Peoria, I’m looking at 7 to 10 inches.  The higher amounts near Quincy and Macomb.

Quad Cities Metro Area..I’ll say 5 to 7 inches.

NORTH.  Including such cities as Maquoketa, Clinton, Galena & Sterling-Rock Falls, I’m looking at 3 to 5 inches.

This system will also have plenty of wind but given how temperatures will be near 32 degrees not only will this be a wet snow but one that will produce some drifting in rural areas well south.

By Tuesday night into Wednesday, impulses will be spreading light snow during this period as the system exits to our east.  This may add another half..to an inch to the totals that were given.  Thats the latest but not the last.  I’ll be there for you.  :)
