Light snow beginning across the area

UPDATE:10:20 pm
Snowfall has already totaled 1 inch in the Rockford area. Reports indicate that the snow is very
light and fluffy.
===================================================================================
Light snow has begun across much of the Chicago Metro area as the Clipper weather
 system moves into the area. With temperatures in the teens, the snow will
quickly cover the ground and roads could become quite slippery until they are
treated. So far the snow is light with visibilities generally holding in the 1-3 mile
range.

Snow totals of 1 to 3 inches are expected across the areas before the
snow tapers to flurries early Saturday.
