Rockford Scanner™: Cold Tonight, Warm up mid week, Possible Several Inches Later This Week…



Update from the NWS on this weeks forecast.

Strong Arctic high pressure will move over the area tonight, bringing mostly clear skies, light winds and very cold temperatures, especially across interior northern Illinois where sub-zero lows are in store. While the light winds will mean thankfully not much of a wind chill effect through the Tuesday morning commute, remember to dress in layers and cover extremities when spending time outdoors. Winds will pick up from the south Tuesday afternoon and evening, with gusts up to 30-35 mph, along with temperatures moderating back to the upper 20s to mid 30s.
A series of fast moving clipper type systems look to affect the region into the weekend. While a narrower swath of light snow accumulation is possible Wednesday night into Thursday, there is a stronger signal for the Friday system to produce more widespread snow accumulations of a few to several inches and associated travel impacts. Stay tuned for the latest updates!
