Saturday …

No weather hazards expected…

Greater than forecasted cloud cover overnight probably held temperatures above the forecast lows for Saturday morning. Official Chicago O’Hare and Chicago Executive Airport did not come close to the forecast low of 26ยฐF for early Saturday morning … instead hourly readings reported at O’Hare after midnight were 33ยฐF from 12:51 a.m. to 6:51 a.m., and hourly readings reported at Chicago Executive Airport after midnight were 34ยฐF from 12:52 a.m. to 6:52 a.m.

O’Hare had a 32ยฐF reading at 11:51 p.m. Friday, and Chicago Executive Airport had readings at 33ยฐF from 8:52 p.m. to 11:52 p.m. Friday.

DISCUSSION…

The main points of interest in the short term period consist of:

* Brief potential for some spotty flurries or freezing drizzle across NW Illinois early this morning.

* Transition to scattered snow showers this afternoon and early evening with no road impacts.

* Lake effect snow showers increasing in coverage and intensity, mainly into Michigan this afternoon and evening.

* More quiescent period to close out the weekend on Sunday.

.SHORT TERM… Issued at 228 AM CST Sat Nov 12 2022

Through Sunday…

The main points of interest in the short term period consist of:

* Brief potential for some spotty flurries or freezing drizzle across NW Illinois early this morning.

* Transition to scattered snow showers this afternoon and early evening with no road impacts.

* Lake effect snow showers increasing in coverage and intensity, mainly into Michigan this afternoon and evening.

* More quiescent period to close out the weekend on Sunday.

A well-defined shortwave is zipping northeastward into southern Illinois early this morning, with the hallmarks of at least transient f-gen banding displayed in radar imagery. Guidance has continued to subtly tick closer to our area with the northwestern terminus of the precipitation shield, although any precipitation will be fighting a wedge of notably drier air in the 800-650 mb layer. Theta-e lapse rates are progged to fall towards 0 or even briefly negative just outside the forecast area–indicative of the presence of upright instability upstairs. Not too surprising, then, to see an expanding area of sub 1 mile visibilities (and even a few brief obs towards a quarter mile) downstate at this hour. Have maintained the inherited slight chance PoPs south and east of a Paxton to Rensselaer line early this morning to account for a potential that light system snow spreads that far northwest. Latest RAP does lay down a few hundredths of an inch of liquid equivalent across far SE Benton county. Will continue to monitor, but think we remain far enough northwest that any impacts will be minimal or nil.

To our northwest, have been noting observations indicating Unknown Precipitation (usually an indication of drizzle) along with some earlier mPing reports of freezing drizzle. This seems to be occurring as the stratus layer is deepening a bit, while cloud tops remain above about -11 C (per soundings and a sampling of IR imagery). Hires guidance indicates some convective-looking splotches in simulated reflectivity towards 12z, which hopefully means some additional UVV to help saturate and cool the top of the cloud canopy a bit to assist with heterogeneous nucleation probabilities a bit. That said, cloud tops are currently warm enough that some spotty freezing drizzle can`t be ruled out early this morning before the boundary layer deepens. This doesn`t appear widespread and hefty enough to warrant concern for roadways, however.

Should see any spotty precipitation trend to flurries with time as cloud tops cool under -12 C, with an expansion of scattered snow showers this afternoon as a series of vort lobes pinwheel overhead. Thermodynamics aren`t “off the charts” by any means, but HRRR, RAP, and ECMWF soundings do show a bit deeper moistening by late this afternoon towards -15 to -18 C with a little bit of CAPE, especially after about 2-3 PM as cooler air arrives aloft. If this is realistic, could envision seeing a few convective bursts. At worst, think there could be some very patchy dustings on grassy surfaces, with air temperatures generally in the mid and upper 30s.

As colder air spills in from the north, LES parameters increase through the afternoon and evening. Latest soundings are saturated perhaps just a bit too shallow to really crank out the larger dendrites, and mild lake temperatures will mute any accumulation potentially right at the lakeshore. That said, still seeing a signal in guidance suggesting a dusting a inland from the lake across far NE parts of Porter County through tonight before winds back sufficiently to push snow showers east of the region. High- end potential is maybe an inch near the La Porte/Porter county lines. Quieter conditions develop on Sunday as high pressure begins to build more notably into the region.
