This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of north central
Illinois...northwest Illinois...west central Illinois...east
central Iowa...northeast Iowa...southeast Iowa and northeast


There is a chance for a wintry mix producing a light ice glaze
late tonight and early Wednesday morning, mainly along and north
of Highway 30 and west of the Mississippi River.

Scattered thunderstorms may spread up across portions of the
Outlook area late tonight and early Wednesday morning, especially
west of the Mississippi River. Although severe weather is not
expected, there will be cloud to ground lightning and some storms
may produce small hail.


A wintry mix will change over to snow during the day on Wednesday
before ending Wednesday evening. The snow may be heavy at times
over portions of northeast Iowa into far northwestern Illinois. A
winter storm watch and winter weather advisory are in effect for
much of the outlook area along and north of Highway 30 where
accumulations of snow and ice will likely impact both the morning
and afternoon commutes.

Recent rainfall and expected snow melt may bring rises to the
Iowa and Cedar Rivers later this week. Forecasts are not confident,
as local rainfall amounts in eastern Iowa were rather light this
past few days. Those with interests near these rivers will want to
keep an eye on forecast trends the next few days as the possibility
of minor river flooding increases or decreases.


Spotter activation is not anticipated today or tonight. Any
reports of snow accumulations of an inch or more on Wednesday
would be appreciated.
