Up to 9 inches of snow forecast as storm approaches Illinois

Radar images this morning show the storm heading head

Winds turn lighter Friday afternoon. Winds won't be as strong, so wind chills won't be as bad. The rest of Friday brings more sunshine to start, but the cold remains. The rest of the night is partly clear. That means parts of the Poconos will feel below zero, while the Lehigh Valley will feel like the lower teens and single digits. This is a major winter storm for the metro area that will last for about 36 hours.

Since our first-call snow map was released Wednesday, we've not seen any need to make changes to our forecast.

Meteorologists say we could see some flurries or very light snow fall on Saturday afternoon thanks to a leading piece of energy associated with this system. To the south, snow may mix in with sleet which could slightly lower accumulations in that area.

As the system moves east toward the southeastern USA snow will spread into central IL tonight and continue through the day Saturday. Roads will be hazardous Saturday morning and early afternoon so give yourself plenty of time to get to KC.

Whatever falls during the day Saturday should be fairly light and shouldn't provide too much of an impact to the road. A wintry mix will blend in again Sunday night as temperatures return to the 30s. Snow showers will linger Sunday night and into Monday morning before conditions dry out. It's breezy, with temperatures in the middle 30s. Temperatures will drop into the 30s for the rest of the day. Wednesday continues to moderate under mostly sunny skies. Lows in the upper 20s.
