...FIRST ACCUMULATING SNOW OF THE SEASON EXPECTED EARLY MORNING
THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON TODAY...

A STORM SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO SPREAD SNOW INTO CENTRAL ILLINOIS

MIDDAY...WARMER AIR WILL BEGIN TO CAUSE THE SNOW TO MIX WITH
RAIN...WHICH WILL LINGER INTO THE AFTERNOON BEFORE ENDING FROM THE
WEST.

ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 2 INCHES ARE EXPECTED IN AREAS FROM MACOMB
TO BLOOMINGTON...NORTHWARD THROUGH PEORIA. LOCATIONS AROUND
GALESBURG AND TOULON ARE LIKELY TO SEE 2 TO 3 INCHES OF SNOW. MUCH
OF THE SNOW WILL BE CONFINED TO GRASSY AREAS...BUT SOME SLUSHY
ACCUMULATIONS ARE POSSIBLE ON AREA ROADWAYS WHERE THE HEAVIER SNOW
FALLS.

PEOPLE PLANNING ON ANY TRAVEL THIS MORNING SHOULD SLOW DOWN WHILE
DRIVING...AS THE SNOW WILL LIMIT VISIBILITIES AT TIMES AND MAY
CAUSE SLIPPERY TRAVEL CONDITIONS ON LESS TRAVELED ROADS.
