Warmest in two weeks but there's more snow on the way
The high temperature Saturday afternoon in Rockford reached 41° making it the warmest temperature we've experienced in almost two weeks! Unfortunately, it still remains roughly 10° below average.
We likely won't see the 40's again Sunday as there is a very strong late season winter storm moving across the Plains this evening. Snow has been falling from Colorado, southern Nebraska through Kansas, Missouri and southwest Iowa this evening and will begin to move east through tonight and Sunday. While the heaviest of the snow will fall from Missouri through central Illinois and into Indiana we'll likely squeeze out 1"-2", with isolated amounts possibly near 3" further south by Sunday evening. Winds will also pick up in intensity from the northeast Sunday with gusts topping 30 mph. Lighter amounts will be found north of the Wisconsin/Illinois border with snow amounts increasing the further south you travel.
