Some locally higher amounts will be possible. Further
north... amounts of 3 to 5 inches are expected around
Bloomington... Peoria... and Havana.

* Wind... speeds are expected to range from 5 to 10 mph through the

late this afternoon and especially this evening. Visibility will
be reduced to less than a mile in the heavier snow tonight and
Sunday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow will

roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while driving.
