(National Weather Service Chicago)
About four days into Spring, the Region is in for a Winter storm, but varying amounts of snow are expected. Then, we could get lake effect. The National Weather Service in Chicago says this system is expected to bring a Spring snow storm to Mid-America late Saturday evening through Monday morning. Accumulating snowfall is possible north of Interstate 80, while in far southern counties heavy snow is possible. Forecasters with the National Weather Service also say widespread snow may become lake enhanced resulting in locally higher amounts from Chicago south and in far Northwest Indiana.
Hebron-native Brandon Fisel, Doctoral Research Assistant in the Department of Geological and Atmospheric Sciences at Iowa State University, says initially we may see one-to-three inches of snow on Sunday, with a total of three-to-six inches by Monday morning due to lake effect snow Sunday night.
