Winter Weather Advisory issued for forecasted Friday snowfall

Winter storm to bring significant snow

A Winter Weather Advisory (purple-shaded area on highlighted map) is in effect from noon until midnight Friday for most of northern IL into northwest Indiana.

Heavy snow and blowing snow. Highways will be snow-covered, slippery and traffic will be slowed considerably during the afternoon/evening commute. While it will be sunny each day, it's going to feel much cooler with those wind chills staying below zero.

- If you're planning to go outside to ring in the new year this weekend in the District, you'll want to bundle up as a brutal cold front continues to sweep over the region. Additional snow accumulations of 10 to 18 inches, are expected.

The National Weather Service is forecasting between two and three inches of snowfall in central Ohio.




Recent model runs are showing the potential for slightly higher snowfall totals than previous forecast models. Snow will linger through midnight Saturday morning.

Forecast models show the greatest impacts along the MT/ID state line including Lookout Pass and along the Rocky mountain front.

On the back side of the system, it's likely we'll see ocean-effect snow showers on the Outer Cape and Islands, so we could see locally higher amounts under some of these ocean-enhanced snow bands. See you next year.
