Peoria, Ill. (WMBD) – After a rough winter storm moved through the region on Monday we are seeing another round of winter weather. This storm system will bring multiple modes of precipitation. Surface temperatures will play a large role in what type of precipitation we see.
- Snow moves in between noon and 3 pm Sunday
- Gradual transition from snow to wintry mix and rain along and south of I-74 by 7 pm
- All snow along I-80
- Snow ends between 10 pm and 1 am
Not looking like a huge snow producer as compared to other storm systems we’ve seen so far this season. Most of the snow will be north of I-74. Could see 2-4 inches along I-80. Roughly an inch to 2 inches along I-74. The far southern portions of the viewing areas could see a trace to 1 inch. Those spots will likely see more rain/mix than snow.
The combination of warming temperatures, melting snow, and rain south of I-74 could lead to some excessive run off could lead to severe ponding or even flooding on streets. To limit this impact make sure drains are cleared of any snow before the storm moves in.
Due to the significant amount of snow cover across the region and across the Mississippi River Valley, temperatures could be slower to climb above freezing Sunday afternoon. This could leave areas along and south of I-74 with a period of freezing rain Sunday evening, though any ice accumulation is expected to be minor.
