Snow won’t be tapering off there until tomorrow afternoon. Temperatures are borderline it is a heavy wet snow that is falling and Winter Storm Warnings are posted for not only Chicago but for Milwaukee and much of the southern half of Wisconson into Northern Illinois. Not bad for a storm that has no gulf moisture to work with. Dynamics plus cold air and a wind off Lake Michigan seem to be doing the trick quite nicely.

This weather system will be pushing a cold front through our area Sunday morning and there could be a rain shower in the early morning hours on Sunday. Behind it temeperatures will fall and reach the mid to upper 20s in many areas by Monday morning.
