The forecast path of the storm will be very similar to the storm that has just passed, Storm Caly, therefore if you saw significant snow from Caly you will likely see another 4-8" later this week and into the weekend. Early indications suggest that the snowfall totals will be slightly higher than experienced in Caly, however will still be mainly rain or sleet say 100-200 miles South of the Lakes, however this forecast is subject to adjustments.
Potential Winter Storm Map, 17th / 18th December:
However, there may be a spell of heavy wet snow on the back edge of this system on Saturday night / Sunday, affecting some states further South for example Southern Pa, North Kentucky etc, whom yet to see significant snowfall this winter.
Some parts of the lakes yet again look in the firing line for another decent snow storm, with up to 12" across parts of Michigan, Wisconsin, the far North of Illinois, Indiana, around Chicago up to 14" could fall this coming weekend.
Anywhere South of Pa will indefinitely see rain rather than snow. The transition from rain to snow will occur from southern IL/IN/OH and be snow in the north of these states, which is pretty similar to what we saw in storm Caly.
Please stay tuned for more updates.
