Snow: Late-morning update

Already, up to 5 inches reported.

Snow: Late-morning update

The last of the heavier bands of snow is moving through the western suburbs, and then the snow should back off -- for awhile.

So far, reports of 4 and 5 inches are common, says Bob Wanton at the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly.

He expects light mixed precipitation this afternoon, and then the main event arrives.

The forecast remains on target for 4 to 8 additional inches tonight, with snow rates of 1-2 inches an hour, says Wanton.

"It's going to be bad."

It already has been.
