Thursday Morning Update
Green, Rock, Jo Daviess, and Stephenson counties have been placed under a Winter Weather Advisory. For northwestern Illinois that will be in effect through noon, Green County in Wisconsin will expire at 1pm and Rock County's advisory expires at 4pm.
Southern Wisconsin will also see the freezing rain and sleet, but also see slightly higher accumulations.
Expect rain and a rain sleet mix as we head through the mid to late morning. As low pressure moves east across northern Illinois today, cold air wraps in behind the low and this will allow a change over to all snow from west to east. A few cities and towns will see a period of heavier snow within a convective band that will set up, and will allow for some locations to see a few inches accumulate. Snow then ends from west to east in the late afternoon
In general, the Stateline will see a couple inches of slushy snow accumulate around the area. However a convective band of snow also is forecast to set up near the Stateline. Within this band 2-4 inches of snow is possible. However, this is not something the entire area will see, but more so locally for a few cities.
