Another Frigid Overnight

Wind chills will again fall to dangerously cold levels Tuesday morning.
As of 7pm, the temperature in Peoria was -8, making 23 hours straight of temperatures below 0º.  With strong winds out of the west, wind chills remain between -25 to -35 across the area.  A WIND CHILL WARNING remains in effect for the entire area until 12pm Tuesday.

A few records were broken with the significant surge of frigid air.  Peoria set a record coldest high of -5 for this date, breaking the old record of -3 set back in 1912.  Bloomington set a record low (-17) and record coldest high (-7) for this date.  The previous record low was -14 (1999), and coldest high was -3 (1912).

While brutally cold temperatures are the top concern, blowing and drifting snow will continue to be an issue into Tuesday.  Strong west winds will continue to whip around snow, especially in outlying areas, making for difficult, if not dangerous driving conditions.


Although we will remain dry Monday night into Tuesday, the pattern will remain active.  Another system will slide in from the southwest bringing another round of snow both Wednesday and Thursday.  While it's still early to talk amounts, a few inches of snow accumulation looks possible for the middle of the week.

While snow maybe bad news, at least warmer temperatures aren't far away.  We should moderate temperatures to the mid 20's by mid week, and actually bump temperatures above freezing by the end of the week into the weekend.
