Snow has spread across our entire area and will continue throughout the night before tapering before sunrise. Everything appears to be on track, where the heaviest of the snow is still expected to fall from central Missouri to downstate Illinois.
Here’s the breakdown..Along the Wisconsin/Illinois border, you’re looking around 2 inches. Along the I80 corridor, (that includes the Quad Cities) I’m looking around 3.. some spots close to 4 inches. Along Highway 34, which includes Mt. Pleasant, Burlington, Monmouth and Galesburg you maybe shoveling around 4 to possibly as high as 6 inches in some spots. You may have noticed, its not much of a change on my page from yesterday. Sticking with my guns the ole’ saying goes. The bottom line here is that we have more snow to shovel in our near future. Open roadways will be a challenge overnight and likely heading into church services Sunday morning as there maybe some drifting in spots.
On Sunday, the winds will remain consistent, and combined with the new fresh snow-covered ground and you have the makings of the pretty cold Sunday. In fact, temperatures may have a tough time getting out of the single digits in most hometowns!
Snow chances looks very spotty next week as temperatures heading into the following weekend make another successful attempt to climb not only above the freezing mark but above normal.
