Relief from the Cold in the Form of Snow

It has been the largest arctic cold outbreak in two years. Some snow is headed for the Midwest late in the week. A northern piece of energy will emerge from the Rockies and phase with a southern storm system. Depending on how quickly the phase together will have a major impact on the amount of snow. Right now the consensus in computer models would put down a general 1-3" with areas up to 4", and lake enhanced areas over 6". Another system will move in for Sunday, this one looks a little stronger and will be watched carefully.
