PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - Foggy conditions from Thursday evening will carry over into our Friday morning. Be mindful this morning, as dense fog is possible with visibilities below half a mile. A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 9 AM as a result of the fog.

With the recent snowmelt over the last few days and sub-freezing temperatures overnight, a few slick roadways will be possible this morning. Heavily traveled roadways should not see any major impacts, but lesser traveled roads could see a few slick spots. Temperatures this morning will run in the mid 20′s to lower 30′s.

We won’t warm up much throughout the day, as daytime highs will reach the low to mid 30′s around lunchtime.

Our next winter storm will arrive during the late afternoon into the evening, bringing snow showers with it. Snow looks to build from west to east starting around 3 PM for areas such as Knox and Fulton Counties. As we head through the evening, snow will gradually overspread the area.

The greatest snowfall totals will remain off to our west mainly along the Mississippi River and into Iowa. Forecast models have indicated a slight eastward shift in this storm, which will increase our snow totals just a bit. Locally, areas along and west of the Illinois River will see the greatest amounts of snowfall. A Winter Weather Advisory starting at 3 PM as a result of the snow.

Totals will gradually decrease the further east you go. While this system will not be as significant as what we saw New Year’s Day, travel may still be difficult, especially for areas west of the Illinois River. As always, be mindful, take it easy and give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination if you do need to travel.
