Skilling pulls through with an awesome snowfall accumulation map for Twitter for our upcoming first significant snowfall. According to Tom Skilling’s map, it looks like Buffalo Grove will get more snow than Arlington Heights, and Arlington Heights will get more than Schaumburg, Elk Grove Village, and O’Hare International Airport.
Satellite images show clear skies over northern and central Illinois, southern Wisconsin, and eastern Iowa. Clear skies are forecast all daylight hours Saturday with clouds increasing at about 9:00 p.m. and snow starting at about 3:00 a.m. If cloud cover comes earlier, lows won’t be as low as forecast.
