We saw one round of snow move through last night into this morning, and overall most of us saw about 1-2" of snow with that. More snow is on the way tonight, and then a third and final wave will move through tomorrow night into Saturday morning.
Expect snow coverage to increase later this evening. Here's what radar may look like.
One of the forecast challenges tonight involves how some warmer air will move into the area from the east. Forecast models are suggesting that snow will either mix with or change over to rain as this warmer air arrives. The further east you are, the better chance you'll have at seeing rain. This, in turn, will also mean you'll likely see lower snow accumulations overnight compared to areas west of the Illinois River where it will likely remain all (or at least mostly) snow.
Tomorrow's forecast won't be too different from what we saw today with rain/snow showers at times.
The third and final round of snow will move through tomorrow night into Saturday morning, and then snow showers will finally taper off during the day on Saturday.
Here's a quick recap of what we can expect over the next 48 hours.
Keep in mind that this map shows additional snowfall, and it does not include what has already fallen. About half of this will fall overnight and into tomorrow morning, while the other half will fall tomorrow night into Saturday morning.
