Almanac


--STORM TEAM FORECAST--


Clouds are on the increase across central and east central Illinois on this Saturday.  Highs will top out in the low 40s on Saturday.  As the precipitation moves in, with temperatures above freezing most of our southern counties will probably see rain showers during the late afternoon, then a change over to snow over the entire area by late Saturday evening.

Snow will begin to accumulate over the viewing area overnight, perhaps amounting to several inches by early Sunday morning.  Snow will continue to accumulate during the day on Sunday, adding more snow to the area.  Lingering snow showers will continue even after the main storm system exits east central Illinois to bring perhaps another 1/2 to 1 inch of additional snow.  

It appears the heaviest snow band will be across the northern half of the viewing area.  For areas north of Illinois Route 9 could see snowfall amounts of 6 to 9-inches.  Areas to the south snow fall of 3 to 6-inches will be possible.  For those south of Illinois 16, snowfall totals will offset by the amount of rainfall or a frozen mix which will occur.

The snowfall potential will depend on the timing of the arrival of the moisture and the incoming cold front from the northwest.  If warmer air lingers longer, that could decrease the amount of snow over much of the area as most of the snow will fall in form of rain.  If the colder air arrives earlier...we'll see more snow.

Travel, obviously will be difficult and hazardous across mid Illinois for the second half of the weekend.  Check on road conditions before venturing out. 

On Monday, much colder air will re-enter the region taking our daytime highs down to the upper teens on Groundhog Day, Monday.  Temperatures will rebound on Tuesday with clouds returning with the arrival of the next Winter weather system which could bring additional snow on Wednesday.  That will be followed by more Arctic air which will take daytime highs down to the upper single digits by next Thursday.
