...Snow Continues This Morning With Slick Travel...

Light, but steady, snowfall, will continue this morning and
possibly into the early afternoon hours due to enhancement from
the lake. Overall rates will remain light, but will be enough to
accumulate on elevated, less-traveled, and grassy surfaces
resulting in slick travel. In addition, visibility will be reduced
to a mile or less at times. Drivers are advised to leave extra
time to reach their destinations this morning. Reduce speed and
increase following distance when driving in snow.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO/ROMEOVILLE, IL  
956 AM CST THU FEB 18 2021  
   
UPDATE  
  
955 AM CST...  
  
WE DID PUSH OUT A QUICK UPDATE A LITTLE WHILE AGO TO INCREASE POPS  
NOTABLY THROUGH THE REST OF THE MORNING AND INTO THE EARLY  
AFTERNOON HOURS, NAMELY ACROSS PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST ILLINOIS  
WHERE PERSISTENT NEAR-SURFACE CONVERGENCE IS HELPING TO SQUEEZE  
OUT LAKE-ENHANCED SNOWFALL. CONVERGENCE IS FORECAST TO REMAIN  
MAXIMIZED INTO DUPAGE, COOK, AND LAKE (IL) COUNTIES EVEN INTO  
EARLY THIS AFTERNOON, AND HAVE ADDED A SLIVER OF ADDITIONAL 1-2"  
OF EXTREMELY FLUFFY SNOWFALL (SLRS NEAR 30+:1) IN THIS AREA. IT'S  
A BIT UNCLEAR HOW THINGS TREND INTO THIS AFTERNOON, WITH GUIDANCE  
OFFERING UP A VARIETY OF SOLUTIONS HERE. THINKING WE SHOULD  
EVENTUALLY DISLODGE THIS LAKE ENHANCEMENT THIS AFTERNOON WITH  
THINGS PUSHING A BIT MORE INLAND THIS AFTERNOON AND EVEN INTO THE  
EVENING. ELSEWHERE, WE'VE GOT JUST ENOUGH LOW-LEVEL ASCENT TO  
SQUEEZE OUT FLURRIES/LIGHT SNOW UNDER PARTLY CLOUDY/PARTLY SUNNY  
SKIES, AND ANTICIPATE THAT THIS WILL REMAIN THE CASE TODAY.   
  
UPDATED PRODUCTS WILL BE OUT SHORTLY.

Just south of Little Rock had 14-18” of snow yesterday/last night.

 

Officially, Little Rock has had 20.3” the past 4 days. However, areas just south of town are closer to 30” in the same 4 day span.

Picked up 3.5" here.  Nice little refresher snow.  Hopefully can squeeze out a few more tenths before it moves out this evening.

Picked up under 1.5" as the lake band lifted north.  Got into OB's backyard after all :lol:.  Too transient to produce any heavy damage but HRRR/RUC indicate it may reorganize this evening.

They are running like 750% of average snow to date :lol:

That 20.3" is easily the record for so much snow in such a short timeframe.  The old record snow in 4 days was 13.1"

Im thinking it looks likely someone in South Oakville-South Mississauga and maybe Long Branch could get 6-8" by the time this ends tomorrow morning. 

South Oakville-South Mississauga getting hit pretty good right now 

 

finally got some consistent light snow where I live. Ill take 1-3" tonight as a nice refresher.

Looks like it wiggled around too much for anyone to get smoked. YYZ up to 3.2".  3.5" call looks like money.
