From the NWS:
Active weather returns to the area through Saturday. Widespread rain is expected this afternoon through tonight. Rain will then transition to snow from northwest to southeast on Saturday, with some accumulation possible primarily north of I-80 and especially near the Wisconsin state line.
Accumulating snow remains possible on Saturday primarily along the Wisconsin state line. A sharp rain-to-snow line and varying precipitation rates continue to lead to a wide-range of snowfall outcomes, with snowfall amounts hinging heavily on if the rain-to-snow line can advance far enough south Saturday morning before heavier precipitation diminishes. Continue to stay tuned for the latest forecast updates and be prepared for potential travel impacts, especially near and north of the Wisconsin border.
