Snow Moves Out, Bitter Cold Moves In

As snow moves out, brutally cold temperatures will move into central Illinois for the next few days.
Snow has wrapped up across the area this evening, but problems will still exist on the the roads.  Winds will continue to whip around at around 20 to at times 30mph, creating near white out conditions, with blowing and drifting.  IDOT has asked motorists to avoid traveling if possible overnight.


A WIND CHILL WARNING is in effect for all of central Illinois, as polar air moves across the Midwest.  Air temperatures fall to around -17 in Peoria, but wind chill reading will fall to around -40, possibly as low as -50 below.  It can not be overstated how serious and dangerous this cold is.  Frostbite can occur in 10 minutes or less.  Many city officials have asked the public to avoid going outdoors both Monday and Tuesday because of the barbaric cold moving in.  

If you have to be outdoors on Monday & Tuesday, where multiple layers.  Don't leave any skin exposed to the elements.  Try to take breaks from the outdoors when possible.

The frigid air will release a bit by the middle of the week, making way for yet another system that could bring a few more inches of snow.  More on that over the next few days.
