Light snow to impact the Midwest tonight.

A low pressure system currently moving across the Plains will bring snow to the Midwest tonight into tomorrow.
Accumulations will range from a few inches to a dusting.
Chicago, IL will receive a dusting, but St. Louis, MO may receive a couple of inches.
Below is the infrared satellite displaying the system progressing eastward.
As the system treks east, I am expecting it to weaken, as the satellite imagery shows how weak it already is.
So don't be surprised to see some flakes falling; it should make for a nice evening... unless you live up north where the temperature is 0!

Important Notice

It has been decided that, in an effort to place more accuracy in forecasts,
that this blog will now be primarily serving the Midwest US.
However, in the event of a major storm, this blog will be serving the areas needed for discussion.

The Severe Weather Centre will remain directed for the entire US.
The Snow Day Meter will be serving the Midwest, sometimes the Northeast.
The Winter Storm Page may be taken down, but that is still on the table.

Remember to vote on the poll.
It closes in 27 days, and its changes will begin as the votes come in.
It helps me know what you want from us here at The Weather Centre.
