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...TONIGHT

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for portions of southeast
Iowa, northeast Missouri and western Illinois overnight through
mid morning Thursday. Light freezing drizzle, changing to light
snow may create a light glazing of ice accumulation and snowfall
amounts up to 1 inch, creating hazardous travel conditions. Patchy
light freezing drizzle and light snow will also be possible over
the remainder of the outlook area overnight, but significant
accumulation is not expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

Mainly light snow will continue Thursday morning with additional
light accumulations possible, which may continue to produce some
slick spots on untreated surfaces especially south of Interstate 80.

A larger storm system will likely produce widespread accumulating
snow across the area from Friday afternoon through Saturday.
Several inches of snow accumulation will be possible with this
system along with strong gusty winds by Saturday, which could
produce blowing and drifting snow adding to the hazard. The exact
track and strength of this system is still somewhat uncertain at
this time, thus snowfall amounts and placement of the higher
totals are also uncertain. Stay tuned for later forecasts and
updates concerning this potentially significant winter storm
system at the end of the week.

Bitterly cold temperatures and wind chills are expected to follow
in behind the departing storm system for Saturday night through Monday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed tonight. However, reports of
snow and ice accumulations would be appreciated.

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of south central
Indiana and Central Kentucky.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

Surface temperatures near on either side of freezing tonight,
combined with light precipitation will lead to potential for a wintry
mix. A few patches of freezing drizzle are possible earlier in the
overnight period, however snow would be more likely toward the
Thursday morning commute. Little to no accumulation is expected, but
a few slick spots can`t be ruled out for the morning commute
especially near bridges, overpasses, and sheltered areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

A low pressure system will bring periods of heavy rain Saturday into
Saturday evening across the area, particularly in central Kentucky.
Widespread rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches are expected with local
amounts around 3 inches possible. This could lead to localized
flooding on creeks, streams, and low-lying areas, along with rises
on some rivers.

Mucher colder air moves into our area Saturday night and Sunday.
Expect a period of snow Saturday night, especially for southern
Indiana and north-central and east-central Kentucky where an inch or
two of snow is possible.

With high temperatures Sunday only in the 20s and lows Sunday night
from 5-15 degrees, wind chills Sunday will only be from 5-15, and
from 3 below to 5 above zero early Monday morning.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters are asked to report precipitation type and any slick spots
overnight into Thursday morning.
