It’s been more than two months since Peoria has seen at least an inch of snow accumulation, but that could change on Wednesday.
The last time Peoria received more than an inch of snow accumulation was on December 4th, when 4.2 inches of snow was reported.
An upper level disturbance will bring snow to Central Illinois late Tuesday night and Wednesday. Light snow showers are expected to develop west of the Illinois River by 3 am, spreading east throughout the morning. Some roads may become slick west of the Illinois River for the morning commute. Light snow will continue throughout the day, gradually tapering off to flurries by early evening.
Snow accumulations will remain light with most locations receiving around an inch of snow accumulation. Locally higher accumulations up to 2 inches will be possible along and north of I-74. With most of the snow expected to fall during the day, snow accumulation on roadways should be minimal. However, as temperatures drop in to the teens Wednesday night, any untreated wet roads could become slick.
