A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Chicago area until noon, with southeast Wisconsin under a Winter Storm Warning, which expires at noon on Tuesday. Total daytime snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible. Temperatures will go above freezing Thursday afternoon.

Our next cold front arrives late Sunday into Monday to bring rain and storms with slightly cooler temperatures. Temperatures will fall into the upper teens along the north shore and Mississippi Gulf Coast, and middle 20's south of Lake Pontchartrain.

"Wednesday Morning: Moderate snow is expected with maximum snowfall rates up to ¾" per hour during the morning rush hour.

The coldest morning will be Thursday morning with lows near 20 degrees. As of 7 a.m., 1.8 inches of snow had fallen at O'Hare and 1.9 inches of snow at Midway.

Accompanying the front, at least three trusted computer models agree with high confidence that light rain will transition to some type of wintry precipitation: sleet, freezing rain or snow.

Light snow could begin falling as early as 6 p.m. Sunday and will continue to fall through Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Wednesday is expected to be about 29 degrees, with a 10 mph to 14 mph northwest wind and gusts as high as 22 mph. Kent, Muskegon, Ottawa, and Ionia counties southward are in this advisory, which was issued to account for snow late tonight through much of the day tomorrow.

TEMPERATURES.A range 8 to 18 degrees is expected this morning. "Farther inland, it's when the snow ends". But remember, if we don't have all of the ingredients coming together Wednesday, parts of the Midlands could miss out on the snow.
