Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for central and southern Illinois, and stretch back west through Missouri. Bands of moderate to heavy snow continue to come down south of the immediate Stateline. The northern extent of the snow is moving into an environment that is a little more dry, so it will take a little while before we begin to see some of the snow fly.
The majority of the accumulating snow will remain downstate, where several inches of snow will fall through early Monday morning. Closer to home, totals less than an inch are more likely. High pressure to the north will block most of the snow from reaching this far north Sunday evening. We’ll start to see some of the light snow move into northern Illinois between 7pm and 10pm, and continue into early Monday morning. Totals around an inch are possible for areas along and south of I-88, with lesser amounts further north. Where the snow does come down roads may be a little slick.
Skies will remain mostly cloudy on Monday with temperatures warming into the low 30s. Another system will pass to the south Monday evening, with a much drier pattern expected – and a warmer one, too – through the end of the week and weekend.
