Powerful Storm to Bring Rain & Snow to Central Illinois

Powerful Storm to Bring Rain & Snow to Central Illinois

James Madden, a forecaster for Exacta Weather, told The Scotsman: "This could surpass the recent snow events and bring some of the heaviest snowfall we have ever seen at this time of the year or at Easter".

Saturday Night: Overcast with a chance for light rain or snow showers during the late evening or early morning hours.

There will be plenty of moisture with the system.

To get the storm, we would need this system to get "picked" up north from a low-pressure system sitting in New England. Unfortunately in some places that precip will come in the form of snow. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for areas east of that line and include Sisseton, Milbank, Clear Lake, Marshall, Redwood Falls, Windom and Jackson. Check our WEATHER ALERTS page for details on your area.

A cold pool of air does sit overhead, though, and will try to spark up a few rain or snow showers as it moves in from the north. Rainfall amounts will average one half to one inch across the region.

Then again, it's possible that Martinsville-Henry County may only get a cold rain, Ruckman said. "Snow in April is not likely, but it's not impossible", either.

Snow totals lowered some as more mixing expected, NWS says

The main focus for winter weather concerns will be our mountain counties of Ashe, Avery and Watauga.

Most of the snow chance will be confined to the parts of Virginia south of Interstate 64 and west of Interstate 95. Snow will continue into tonight. Silverman said residents there may see about 3 to 5 inches.

Saturday: Partly sunny with a 20 percent chance for rain in the afternoon.

Snowfall rates may peak between 1-2 inches per hour, according to the NWS, leading to significant reductions in visibility and very hard travel conditions. Snowfall accumulation of around in inch is possible through today. Just bring warm clothes for after the dip!

Any precipitation that falls locally is expected to be finished by Sunday afternoon, before the STP 500 NASCAR race at Martinsville Speedway is scheduled to begin, the forecast indicates.
