The timing of this system continues to favor light snow arriving in places like Burlington and Galesburg just before midnight tonight.

However, given the fact that we're now closer to the storm's arrival - the National Weather Service in Blacksburg has issued a Winter Storm Warning from mid-day Saturday through Sunday afternoon.

The National Weather Service says snow was to begin about 3 p.m.in southwestern IL and spread northeast throughout the evening, reaching the Chicago area by early Saturday. Calling for most to see between 2-4 inches of snow. AccuWeather.com predicts 6 to 12 inches of snow in those areas. We will also have traffic updates all day, including Rodger Brand and Maria Keena's traffic reports until 9 a.m. today and during Total Information P.M. St. Louis will start to see snow around noon. The highest amounts are expected in southeast Iowa and west-central IL.

The NWS says snow is expected across the region and some parts could get four to six inches of snow. A heavy, wet snow will likely occur late Friday into early Saturday morning along the I-70 corridor through IL.

A Winter Storm Watch has already been issued for southern IL into eastern Missouri ahead of the system. A midwest storm will make headlines, however Michiana will be on the northern edge, with marginal snowfall. Meanwhile, dry air from the north may keep much of the snow south of Detroit. The snow ends by Sunday with clearing skies into Monday of next week.
