A White Valentine's Day in Store
The bulk of the snow will fall from late morning into early evening. During this time, the snow will be light to moderate at times, and it should be falling at a relatively constant rate. With winds picking up during the day, blowing snow and reduced visibility could be an issue at times.
In terms of accumulations, models are in pretty good agreement with a general 2-4" across much of the viewing area. However, with the snow expected to fluffy and light, totals could be more in the 3-5" range, especially to the south and west of Rockford. Areas to the east, such as McHenry, Walworth and Belvidere could see 1-3" with 4" not impossible.
