... Accumulating snow event expected this weekend...

A winter weather system is expected to develop in the Southern
Plains this weekend and lift northeast into the Tennessee Valley.
As the system develops... a mix of rain and snow will move into
central Illinois Saturday evening. During the late evening the
precipitation will change over to all snow. The snow will become
moderate during the overnight hours... with 2 to 3 inches of
accumulation possible by Sunday morning... mainly north of
Interstate 70. Snow will continue across central and southeast
Illinois during the day Sunday... with an additional 2 to 3 inches
possible through Sunday afternoon. As the system lifts further
east of the area Sunday night... the snow will taper off and only
around one half inch of additional accumulation is expected at
this time. Total snowfall from Saturday night through Sunday night
could range from 5 to 6 inches. Current thinking is that the axis
of heaviest snowfall will occur somewhere along a Jacksonville to
Danville line.

This system is still a couple of days away and there still remains
some uncertainty as to the track of this system and the amount of
snowfall possible. Therefore... changes in the amount and location
of the heaviest snowfall will likely change between now and the
time the snow arrives Saturday night. So... stay tuned for later
updates to this winter weather situation.
