Snow continued to spread across central Illinois from the west
through the evening hours. The snow was generally north of a line
from Quincy to Rantoul at late evening, but was creeping south as the
system was weakening. Temperatures across the area at 9 p.m., ranged
from 18 degrees at Galesburg, to 31 degrees at Jacksonville.
An Alberta clipper low pressure system located in northern Missouri
this evening, will track southeast, towards the Ohio Valley by
Thursday morning. To the northeast of the low pressure track,
accumulating snow will fall from Iowa, southeast through central
Illinois, overnight. Several inches of accumulation are expected,
especially northwest of a line from Jacksonville to Bloomington.
The system will weaken as it shifts southeast, so amounts will
quickly taper off to around a half inch near the I-70 corridor.
Behind this weather system, another round of Arctic air will move in,
for Thursday and Friday.
Low temperatures overnight, will range from 10 to 15 degrees below
zero in northern Wisconsin, to the mid 20s in southeast Missouri.

across central and northern sections of Iowa and Wisconsin, to the
low to mid 30s along the Ohio River Valley.
