The forecast for storm total snowfall amounts near Lake Michigan haven’t changed materially with 5 to up to 9 inches. Arlington Heights and nearby suburbs may see totals around 9 inches with additional snow coming from northwest Illinois and lake effect snow overnight. However, south of I-80 the forecast accumulation has trended downward where low-quality snow and an incoming dryslot from Missouri are expected to cut into overall total amounts of snow, according to the NWS Chicago office. Forecast soundings south of I-80 later this evening show the southern area losing the better saturation above 600 mb after about 8-9 PM, leaving a saturated lower troposphere that’s all warmer than about -8 C. This suggests precipitation type may begin to transition to light snow and patchy freezing drizzle, further cutting down on totals.
