Expires 5:00 PM EST on January 30, 2015


... Several inches of snow expected Saturday night and Sunday...

A winter weather system is expected to develop in the southwest
states into Saturday and lift northeast into the Ohio River valley
Sunday afternoon. As the system develops... a mix of rain and snow
will move into central Illinois Saturday afternoon and early evening.
During late Saturday evening and overnight the precipitation will
change over to all snow. The snow will become moderate during the
overnight hours... with 3 to 4 inches of accumulation possible by
dawn Sunday morning... north of I-70. Snow will continue across
central Illinois during the day Sunday and Sunday evening... with an
additional 2 to 4 inches likely. As the system lifts further east of
the area overnight Sunday night... the snow will taper off to
flurries. Some blowing and drifting snow could develop during
Sunday afternoon and Sunday night as gusty north winds develop.
Snowfall totals from Saturday night through Sunday night could
range from 5 to 8 inches with locally higher amounts from I-72
north.

This system is still a couple of days away and there still remains
some uncertainty as to the track of this system and the amount of
snowfall possible. Therefore... changes in the amount and location
of the heaviest snowfall will likely change between now and the
time the snow arrives Saturday night and Sunday. Stay tuned for
later updates to this developing winter weather situation.
