Tracking accumulating snow for the middle of the week
PEORIA (25 News Now) - The work week forecast will begin on a rather quiet note Monday and Tuesday. Mostly cloudy skies will give way to filtered sunshine for this afternoon. Southwest winds will gust up to 25 mph and will help warm temperatures into the upper 30s for afternoon highs. Clouds will thicken back up tomorrow, with highs once again in the upper 30s.
Active weather returns to central Illinois by early Wednesday morning, as a winter storm moves through the region. Winter Storm Watches have been issued for communities to the south and east of the 25 News Viewing area, ahead of the potential for significant snowfall accumulations. Locally, snowfall amounts will not be as high, however we do expect to see more than enough snow to bring travel impacts throughout the day on Wednesday.
Flurries/snow bursts will be possible on the backside of this weather system on Thursday, however any additional accumulation would be fairly minor during this period. A weak disturbance will slide in from the northwest on Friday and that may also produce light snow showers. The extended forecast features an unsettled wintry theme, with more snow chances and colder air through the middle of next week. Stay tuned!
