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


A winter weather advisory is in effect for a good portion of eastern
Iowa and a small portion of northwestern Illinois into early this
evening. A wintry mix will change to snow, with accumulations of
1 to 3 inches possible mainly northwest of a Fairfield, Iowa to
Freeport, Illinois line. In addition, the falling snow combined with
brisk winds may lead to periods of significantly reduced visibility.


There will be a chance for thunderstorms across portions of the
Outlook area late Tuesday night and Wednesday. It is too early to
determine if there will be a chance for severe weather.

The same storm system that could produce some thunderstorms, may
also produce gusty winds and a wintry mix in portions of the area
Tuesday night through Wednesday. There is still a lot of
uncertainty regarding the track of this system, thus also where
and how much of any wintry precipitation may fall.

Recent rainfall and expected snow melt may bring rises to the Iowa
and Cedar Rivers this upcoming 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 will not be needed today or tonight. Any reports
of snow accumulations of an inch or more through this evening
would be greatly appreciated.
