Another, even larger, storm will move in from the west early next week. An area of 4-8" possible in Minnesota and northern Wisconsin, with less south. Models are still trying to conform on a solution as to where this band will set up. Yet another system possible at the end of the week...winter continues.

Problems: dry air in northeastern areas and banding
Confidence: axis of heavy snow along Mississippi River and track.
Dry air will really prevent a strong eastern movement to the snow band so areas such as northeast Wisconsin will not see much. It looks like the strong band will hit Minneapolis to Chicago. With such a narrow band, we will be watching to see if anything changes tonight and tomorrow morning. Stay tuned!

Very quick update tonight. It looks like we will have a narrow band of heavy snow from a strong clipper. This clipper will then merge with another shortwave system to combine over northern Illinois and keep the band going. This forecast is tough. Usually models would be averaged to create an actual snow map, but confidence is simply too low. Come back tomorrow morning to afternoon for a snow map!
Also, would like to thank you for all the support in the past few weeks! Thank you to those that have sent messages via facebook and/or "shared" our maps to spread the word to your friends! Keep it up!
