Snow totals could be higher Friday
Before the first snowfall of the season arrives, it should be a quiet Thursday with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be chilly in the upper 30s, and this is just the start of a rather cold November thus far.
Increasing clouds are expected later today ahead of the snow maker. Speaking of the snow, it won’t start until after midnight with heavier squalls moving in by sunrise. The system continues to scoot northeast, but with a tilt to the storm, lakeside communities could see the most out of this. Most locations will see 1”-3”, with isolated 4” possible. The snow will turn to flurries and brief snow showers by the afternoon and evening. Altogether, the snow will end by early Saturday morning; the heaviest during this whole storm will be on Friday morning. Give yourself extra time to get where you need to be on Friday.
Even with the snow slowly ending throughout the day on Friday, the winds will crank up out of the west from 15-25 mph. This will create visibility problems and blowing snow. High pressure moves back in for the weekend and sunshine will be in full force on Saturday.
