A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 1 PM CDT Wednesday.
* Timing... rain will overspread much of central Illinois this evening... then change to snow late evening from Rushville to Bloomington northward. The change to snow will likely occur shortly after midnight around Springfield and Jacksonville... then between midnight and 3 am for areas from Decatur east to Danville. The snow will end from west to east Wednesday morning.
* Accumulations... accumulations of 3 to 5 inches are likely... with locally higher amounts possible... especially along and north of the I-74 corridor. The heaviest snow is most likely between midnight and sunrise.
* Wind... northerly winds will increase overnight and range from 20 to 30 mph. Some gusts to around 45 mph are possible late tonight. The windy conditions will continue into Wednesday morning.
* Impacts... roads will quickly become slushy as the snow accumulates. As temperatures fall into the 20s overnight... the slush will begin to freeze as well... causing icy travel conditions. Visibility will be significantly reduced in the heavier snow bands. The wet snow is expected to limit the amount of blowing and drifting to a relative minimum... although areas near Champaign and Danville are more likely to see some blowing snow due to the higher wind speeds in that area.
A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while driving.
