ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - We said goodbye to the snow as it rolled away, but the clouds on the other hand continued to roll into today.

It turned out to be a pretty overcast day with zero breaks for sunshine. We even saw temperatures cool down into the mid- to lower 30s. Our high of the day being 34 degrees in Rockford and the wind chill was 21 degrees, making it feel even colder.

Winds calmed down a bit compared to yesterday where they were coming in strong from the northwest at 15 to 20 mph. Now, winds are more on the breezier side at 10 mph.

Cloudy night.

Saturday will be a fairly cloudy day with not much room for sun to shine through. As we get closer to the evening we will expect to see some snow start to fall around 7:30. This snow fall will continue through the rest of the night into the early hours of Sunday. However, snowfall should break apart around six in the morning leaving the remainder of the day cloudy.

Some flurries may be present but a fairly dry, cloudy day.
