Patchy fog this morning, snow heading into the weekend
PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - A weak wave will move through the region early this morning, bringing the chance for a light freezing drizzle. We won’t see much snow, if any, from this wave due to warmer temperatures aloft and moisture being limited to the lower parts of this atmosphere.
While snow is unlikely, light freezing drizzle and patchy fog is possible. This, in combination with any melted snow that could have frozen over since yesterday could lead to a few slick spots this morning. The rest of the day looks mild, with temperatures slightly above average in the mid to upper 30′s.
Our focus remains on the potential for snow Friday afternoon into Saturday morning with a passing storm system. Forecast guidance continues to keep the heaviest bands of snow off to our west. As a result the greatest snowfall totals remain along and west of the Mississippi River.
Snowfall will begin in the late Friday afternoon into the early evening from west to east. Expect snow chances to continue into Saturday morning.
Locally, a sharp cutoff in our snow totals is likely. With this storm’s track, our greatest totals locally will occur in our western and southwestern counties where 2-4″ of snow is possible. Areas further to the east will likely see less than an inch of snow.
Make sure to tune in this morning for the full 10 Day Forecast!
