Here's a look at the latest Winter Storm Impact Forecast. Snow is expected to ramp up after midnight and continue through Saturday evening. The heaviest of the snow will fall Saturday morning with snowfall rates of 1-2" an hour possible during that time. This will have a major impact on anyone traveling. If you have plans on Saturday, especially in the morning, you might want to think about rescheduling or postponing them. Snow will lighten for the afternoon and evening with the heaviest snow totals south of the Rockford metro.
Because of the amount of snow we're expecting, several advisories and warnings will be in effect for the Stateline. They include:
Winter Weather Advisory: Green, Rock, and Walworth in Wisconsin. Jo Daviess, Carroll, Stephenson, Winnebago, and Boone in Illinois.
Winter Storm Warning: Whiteside, Ogle, Lee, DeKalb, and McHenry.
Here's a closer look at snow totals through Saturday. The Rockford metro is looking at 4-6" of total snow, with slightly smaller amounts to our north and west and accumulations up to 10" possible to our south, especially in Lee and DeKalb counties.
