Would be very pleased to have been wrong w that sentiment lol. But i was saying that based on nws changed description on snowfall accumulations for christmas day from 4 inches to 1 for whatever reason. When are the heaviest bands supposedly coming through? 

Not sure. Originally it was tonight. As posted above, not sure if the system to our east helps or hurts. It may push the better lake bands west of Kzoo in the end. Just have to wait and see on this one. In a good winter, everything goes well. Then there's the opposite ofc where nothing works out. So far, that's the kind of season it has been to this point.

Myself on the right. GF's son on left. And this is only 2 hours in. Can't imagine how this will be later!

12z Euro Control has a different look to it compared to the OP but further south with the precip.  

Just upgraded to a blizzard warning! Welcome to the blizz!  Now up to 12” in the point. Yowza!

Quite the plume and possible meso-low in S. Lake Michigan attm. Should be a fun Christmas morning over that way. My former place on the IN/MI state line looks likely dbl digits per IWX.

I've had some intermittent snow shower activity all day yesterday which brought down the visibility in spots that made it look sorta festive. Didn't last long but it reminded me that it does snow in Chicago....actually, ORD picked up 0.2" officially bring the season snowfall total to just under an inch at 0.9"!  LOL

Not my former home, just my former work location. Yeah, that's a White Christmas to remember waking up to:

@ Niko and I believe there is another member up in the "thumb" of MI that look to score a few inches... @kush61looks golden...Merry White Christmas!

So far picked up 2.2" and counting. Cant believe the hvy stuff is just a few miles east of me, but I am definitely not complaining. This is perfect and also great timing for a "White Christmas."  So far for the month of December, snowfall has been AN.  "Tis The Season."❄️

Btw: Nothing better than to have very cold air in place during a snowevent (such as today w temps in the upper teens attm) because everything sticks and snow that is falling does not go to waste, rather accumulates instantly on pavement.

- Also, I have notice Chicago has been doing very poorly w snow so far, "I think." I hope you can start scoring soon. What is your snow status as of lately?
