Friday's Snow Followed by More Winter Headaches Sunday - Monday

January 24, 2013; 10:40 AM ET


1. I adjusted the snow map again for the storm Friday. Unless the models come out and say something totally different, this is what I am going with for the snow. I still think there will be a few surprises Friday as the high snow ratios play the game of locally higher amounts. You can see how that happens with last night's sneaky snow event where a tenth of an inch of liquid translated to 2-3 inches of snow. That's 20:1 to 30:1 ratios. So again, don't be surprised to see some local amounts up to 5 inches tomorrow.

2. The cold air will relax next week as we go into a warmer but stormy weather pattern. I urge you to watch the video for more specifics. The map below shows the area of possible ice and snow problems Sunday into Monday. I do think that parts of Illinois and Iowa could see a significant ice event before the warm air arrives. Speaking of warm air, by Tuesday, these areas could be in the 60s.
