A winter storm will impact central and southeast Illinois Tuesday into early Wednesday.
Light snow will develop across the area Tuesday morning, then will become moderate to heavy Tuesday afternoon and evening. The snow will gradually taper off and come to an end by early Wednesday.
Due to the high likelihood of heavy snow amounts, a WINTER STORM WATCH has been issued from noon Tuesday through noon Wednesday. Snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches will be likely across the watch area, with lower amounts of 3 to 4 inches expected along and south of an Effingham to Robinson line.
In addition to the snow, gusty northwesterly winds will create considerable blowing and drifting snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning

Low pressure currently developing in Colorado will track E/NE into the Great Lakes by Saturday evening. This system is quite different than those we’ve recently seen, as it is approaching from the southwest and has more moisture and warmer air to work with. As a result, a wide variety of wintery precipitation is expected across central Illinois.
Light snow will develop by around midday on Friday, January 31st then continue into the early evening hours. This initial surge of precipitation will be quite light, with most locations along/north of a Jacksonville to Danville line measuring less than 1” of snow. Further south, conditions will be warm enough to support all rain or a rain/snow mix south of I-70.
As low pressure ejects northeastward out of Colorado, precipitation will become heavier from late Friday evening through early Saturday afternoon. Warmer air lifting northward ahead of the system will allow the precipitation to change to freezing rain or just plain rain across a large swath of central and southeast Illinois…with mainly snow falling from the Peoria area northwestward.

Winter will continue to kick us around the next 10 days.
Models are in pretty much agreement that we will have a system move through Friday night into Saturday and bring a wintry mix of both ice and snow.
Ice accumulations shouldn’t be heavy but mixed with 2-4” of snow (heavier amounts the further north you are), it will still make traveling hazardous.
