A Winter Storm Watch will be in effect starting Friday evening.

The National Weather Service in Topeka has issued a winter weather advisory for Douglas County and other areas of northeast Kansas from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 p.m. Saturday.

Since we are dealing with precip. type changes, fine-tuning will likely be needed as we get closer to the start of the snow later Saturday night.

Snow will likely begin in the immediate Chicago area Saturday morning with the city receiving an inch or two.

In parts of the 77 corridor and Southside, ice accumulation on top of some accumulations of snow will be possible.

We're in a snow drought since our last major winter storm in early December.

If you're going to be traveling away from Central Indiana for the weekend, perhaps to see the Colts plays in Kansas City, you will want to plan to leave by early tomorrow morning. The cold conditions continue Friday with highs in the 30s once again under cloudy skies. Highs on Saturday will reach the mid 30s, but afternoon wind chills will be in the mid to upper 20s.

"2-3" should fall north with 3-5" over a good chunk of the area & 5-7" in the far southwest & south on the edge of the Winter Storm Watch area.
