Snow moves in for the weekend and for some in Illinois, the totals will add up. As it looks right now, Friday morning, the heaviest axis of snow will fall from north-central Illinois southward through I-80. Areas from Sterling, Dixon, Amboy, Paw Paw, Steward and Shabbona could receive in excess of six inches of snow.
Two main systems will work together this weekend to bring snow through Sunday night. One low is off the coast of British Columbia, with the second in the southwestern United States. While there are still some uncertainties with the exact track of the snow, the timing is pretty much set.
