Winter Weather Advisory for Thursday - blowing snow

The National Weather Service says to expect blowing snow, very cold wind chills, and winds gusting as high as 45 miles per hour.

More snow is likely Sunday night through Monday.

A multi-day episode of very cold wind chills continues.

A wind chill advisory means that cold air and the wind will combine to create low wind chills.

Looking ahead, however, the National Weather Service is calling for more snow next week, with several inches of accumulation possible Monday night. Mostly cloudy and cold, with a high near 17. Temperatures Friday morning were -4 in Peoria and -11 in Rochelle and Sterling. Temperatures at Noon on Thursday will climb into the lower 20s; however, by the evening temperatures will quickly plummet into the single digits. Afternoon highs will only reach the upper teens, roughly 20° below the seasonal averages.

An arctic cold front will bring a round of snow showers by Thursday afternoon, January 24.

Light snow will develop late Friday night.

Our seasonal snow deficit is shrinking.

As the cold air plunges in later Tuesday, rain could change to a little snow.
