Here Comes the Snow With Icy Roads by 10 p.m.
Here we go again! A quick inch of snow has already fallen from Peoria to just south of Rockford in Illinois and we should have about a 3 to 4 hour period of some moderate bursts of snow as temperatures fall below freezing here at home. Precisioncast is doing a good job showing this above. The green showing the rain area quickly change to blue or all snow by 10 p.m. This means it will stick quickly and become icy in a hurry. I think most of us could see a quick inch of snow with 1 to 2 inches north and west of Lafayette where it changes over earlier and this includes Rensselaer, Remington, Monon, and Francesville. Here is the latest update on the timing of things and snowfall below.
Another big concern will be bitter cold temperatures combined with wind gusts near 25 mph. This will drop wind chills to near zero tomorrow morning. So nature is hitting us with a little bit of everything and even if we do not have a big snowstorm on the board tonight, I am worried about big problems on the roadways late tonight and tomorrow morning. Please be careful out there.
