Snow heading toward Central Illinois

(MCT) — BLOOMINGTON — By the time the weekend gets here, a small dose of spring fever may be in the air, but that’s not until the weekend.

First things first.

A storm system is heading toward Central Illinois which could dump as many as five inches of fresh snow on the McLean County area by the time it ends Tuesday night.

Today, there is a chance of snow before noon, and then a chance of light rain or snow with a high of 36 degrees.

Tonight, rain and snow are likely, and could be mixed with sleet, mainly after midnight. Overnight low will be around 30 degrees and we could see an accumulation of less than a half-inch of snow and sleet.

Tuesday will present the biggest challenge as far as travel. Snow, possibly mixed with sleet, is in the forecast for the morning hours. Heavier snow will fall in the afternoon with up to four inches possible. The snow will taper off to flurries in the evening hours.

After that, we have a slow warming trend. Wednesday’s high will be 33 degrees. Thursday, we will have a high of 39 degrees. Friday and Saturday, we could hit 49 degrees.
