Potential winter storm for Friday and Saturday

2018-01-10

NORTH WEBSTER (NWS) -- A period of active winter weather is expected from Friday morning through Saturday.

Rain is expected to transition to a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow early Friday morning into before changing to all snow Friday afternoon. Some ice accumulation and slick roadways are possible during this period. Snowfall accumulations are expected to be minor through Friday afternoon with a few inches of snow possible especially along and southeast of Route 24.

A stronger storm system will affect the area Friday night into Saturday with a potential of significant snow accumulations in excess of 6 inches. Some uncertainty remains regarding the exact track of this system, but at this time the greatest potential of significant snow accumulations appears to be roughly southeast of a line from Litchfield, MI to Logansport, IN Friday night into Saturday evening.

In addition, there is a potential of gusty north winds accompanying the storm resulting in blowing and drifting snow and significantly reduced visibilities.

Much colder air will move back into the region Saturday night behind this system with increasing chances of lake effect snow showers Saturday night into Sunday morning.
