The National Weather Service forecast does state the precipitation will taper off on Sunday afternoon.

As for freezing rain (ice), a few hundredths of an inch is possible, especially over central and southern sections of the CBS4 viewing area.

"Make no mistake about it: This is a heavy snow, heavier than we have seen in a number of winters", Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told the Weather Channel on Thursday. The highest snow totals are expected along and north of I-70. Light freezing rain overnight to midday Sunday. At 5 inches, Fort Wayne has half the snow depth of Angola.

Friday will see another cold day with temperatures hovering around the freezing point throughout the day. New ice accumulation of less than a 0.1 of an inch possible. Chance of precipitation is 40%. The heavy snow is forecast to move into upstate NY and New England by early Saturday. During the rest of the night, the snow will begin to move northward.
