We will have more on that system as we get closer to the time.
But it may not last for the night as forecasters initially predicted earlier in the week.
Snow is expected to start accumulating at 5 p.m. Sunday in northern parts of Aroostook County, northern Penobscot County, northern parts of Somerset County and throughout Piscataquis County, according to the National Weather Service.
"Those areas that do not change over to a mix or rain will receive a significant amount of snow", wrote Pennsylvania Weather Action lead forecast Chris Corrigan in a "First Call" post about the storm published Monday afternoon. Partly sunny, with a high near 72. Southwest wind around 10 miles per hour. Northeast wind around 6 miles per hour becoming southeast in the afternoon. Southwest wind around 6 miles per hour.
Once we approach sunrise, most of the precipitation should begin to ease off the radar with spotty freezing drizzle and/or flurries possible through midday.
Sunday night: Rain before 3 a.m., then a slight chance of snow and sleet between 3 a.m and 4 a.m., then a slight chance of rain and snow after 4 a.m. All precipitation should end from west to east Wednesday evening and things will dry out overnight, although temperatures are expected to drop back below freezing Wednesday night so icy spots will redevelop in areas that did climb above freezing. Snow will pile up quickly with 3 to 5 inches of accumulation anticipated for much of northern IL.
Wednesday: 42/30. Wind chill values between 22 and 36 degrees. Winds will still be out of the west at 10-15 miles per hour.
Tuesday: A 20 percent chance of rain after 2 p.m.
The afternoon continues as mostly sunny with temperatures in the low to mid teens. Chance of precipitation is 80%.
Wednesday: Rain likely, mainly after 8 a.m. Cloudy, with a high near 35. The chance of precipitation is 90 percent.
- After the transition to rain occurs later Wednesday morning or early afternoon, rainfall amounts of one-half to one inch through Wednesday evening could potential cause minor, poor-drainage flooding.
