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
Missouri.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

A strong arctic front will sweep through the area this morning.
Northwest winds gusting between 30 to 40 mph will result in
considerable blowing and drifting snow. Localized near whiteout
conditions are possible in rural areas along with impassable roads
from drifts several feet deep. A Winter Weather Advisory has been
issued for the entire outlook area until 9 PM.

Dangerously cold wind chills between 20 to 30 below are expected
from late this afternoon through Friday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

Dangerously cold wind chills from 20 to 30 below zero are expected
through late Friday morning.

Light accumulating snow of 1 to 2 inches is likely late Friday
morning into Friday evening, mainly southwest of a Dubuque, Iowa
to Princeton, Illinois line.

Another round of accumulating snow is possible Sunday night through
Monday night. While it is too early to determine exact amounts,
it does appear several inches of snow is possible along with brisk
winds, and blowing and drifting snow.

Favorable conditions exist on many area rivers for rapid
development of ice, which in turn could cause flooding due to ice
jams. This potential will exist through the next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Reports of whiteout conditions and very significant drifting would
be appreciated.
