Confidence of Weekend Winter Snowstorm Remains Strong

Confidence of Weekend Winter Snowstorm Remains Strong

Snow will taper off Saturday for most areas, but lake effect snow could continue in some areas until Tuesday. In addition, these strong winds will bring significantly colder air into the region. A Winter Weather Advisory (purple-shaded counties on the headlined map) is in effect for the entire Chicago area Friday afternoon through Friday night ending early Saturday morning.

Saturday features dry conditions for the first half of the day, with increasing cloud cover and snow showers moving in through the evening hours. Snow spreads across northern Minnesota during the afternoon hours and may reach Grand Marais, Minn., by early evening.

Accumulating snow is expected to begin in westernmost sections mid-afternoon Friday, spreading across the entire area into northwest in by early evening. Temperatures will be falling Saturday afternoon with single-digit readings and sub-zero wind chills area-wide Saturday night.

Study suggests a connection of body's choice of menopause
The research is based on data collected from 2,936 women, recruited as the baseline cohort for the SWAN study in 1996/1997. The reason may be because "ovulation requires a lot of energy, and it has also been shown to impair your immune function".


As a result, a WINTER STORM WARNING has been issued for areas north of I-90 from tomorrow morning through 6 PM Saturday. 5"-10" of snow looks likely in these areas, along with a glaze of ice. Winter weather advisories are up for parts of 19 states.

Snow and sleet accumulation of 1 to 2 inches is expected for areas near the Nebraska border with amounts generally less than 1 inch for places farther south. Needless to say, travel will become very hard from tomorrow afternoon through the first half of Saturday. Strong northwest winds may cause blowing and drifting snow Saturday. Be sure to use caution if traveling.

Into the next work week, expect highs unseasonably cold - into the 20s to 30s.
