A fast moving clipper system dumped the first batch of snowfall onto Illinois and Indiana during the 2010-2011 cold season. Just as we thought the accumulating snow ended up just northeast of the tri-states. With reports upwards of 8″ in just a twelve hour period in some parts of northern and central Illinois.
With a big shot of cold air on the way from Canada, the areas to our northeast with snow on the ground will drop another 10 degrees or so futher then places without snow. During the daytime, the snows high albedo will also reflect more of the suns energy directly back into space. Keeping a cap on daytime temperatures.
