Storm Team 3: Old Man Winter not done yet

Snow could pile on this weekend

It may be the end of April, but Mother Nature lost her calendar. A potent low pressure system will march into the Midwest and sling snow at the region for this weekend. Snow is looking likey with a few inches possible - even more in some locations. Where exactly the heaviest snowfall hits has not been determined yet, and there will be slight shifts in the forecast.

Generally, the heaviest snowfall appears to drop from I-90 and north, although, snow is still possible as far south as north Iowa. The difficulty of the forecast is the temperature profile, track of the low, and exactly where the heaviest swath will sit. The heaviest cluster could see as much as 6", especially on grassy surfaces. Snow could start as early as Saturday morning and will end by Saturday evening setting up a less chaotic day on Sunday. Impacts will be felt on the roads along with reduced visibilities in the heaviest bands of snow. Also, this storm will not only produce snow, but rain and wind will be big players. Another 0.50" of rainfall in some sections will be the norm; winds will gust to 35 mph. Stay tuned for more updates on this changing weather setup.!
