Curious if this warm nose will get as north as some models suggest. Hrrr bringing it up past I74. ILX was thinking it would mostly impact areas between I70 and I72 but some hi res models are saying otherwise. 

Misting here, not flurries. Might get a bit more freezing rain than expected.

been having lake enhanced flurries all morning here, nice dendrites but very minimal accumulation

We've been getting lake flurries and occasionally a snow shower since yesterday. While not intense, I'm pretty impressed by how far inland they are managing to make it. Hope this bodes well for the main show.

Michigan offices are over winter. No advisory needed for widespread 2-5



You can blame "classic" far SEMI p-type issues per DTX


The better moisture and thus higher QPF values are expected to
reside along and south of I69 with values ranging between .20 to .30
inches by the end of the event. Models continue to show a shallow
dgz between 600 to 500 mb with a lofty "warm" nose down to the near
surface, bringing about riming concerns
which would lower snow
ratios. Additionally, an elevated dry slot will also start to strip
away from the DGZ around 02-03Z through 09Z, which will
hamper snow ratios further and may even bring a period of freezing

They're actually forecasting the highest accumulations north of the Metro (as per usual it seems). Shocker!

There's clearly a LES band in the northern suburbs affecting Grayslake, McHenry, and Woostock (and further west). It's not half bad. Nothing crazy, but bursts of decent snow and lovely fluffy dendrites. 

I should have said "clearly a band of stronger returns in the general area of flurries/light snow" - there is also another band further south toward Chicago.

Sleet ending in STL metro within an hour or so it looks like. I think they're anticipating some lingering freezing drizzle to continue into evening minimal ice accumulation. Overall I think we got around or just under a slushy inch, within their call. Got in a little jeb walk yesterday during the first round so I'm about as satisfied as I could be with this storm.
