Some snow, some ice, mix & lots of rainfall ahead.

Posted: Dec 29, 2020 9:59 AM
Updated: Dec 29, 2020 2:31 PM

Quick burst of snow is possible 3-9 p.m.  Accumulation is possible in part of the area.

Some light freezing rain & drizzle may follow up to 12 a.m.

After this, some patchy drizzle & a few light rain showers are possible as temperatures rise from 29-33 to 31-36 over the area (with increasing southeast to south-southeast wind).

Be aware of the potential of some slick spots in this time frame, especially over the northern half of the area, from burst of snow & some light freezing rain.

Minor less than 1" snowfall accumulation & brief thin glaze is possible, mainly in the northern half of the area.  More in the way of snow is possible in the far northern part of Newton & Jasper counties.

Projected snowfall for our area in the 4-9 p.m. time frame.  Notice the less than 1" amounts projected, especially in the northern half.  1-1.5" snow is possible in far northern Newton & Jasper counties toward the Kankakee River.

After 12 a.m., freezing rain is likely over Newton, Jasper, far northern White, Pulaski, far northern Cass, Miami to Fulton counties.  A bit of sleet may mix in over northern Newton & Jasper counties.

Up to 0.10" of glaze is possible.

The rest of the area will see rain.

After 4 a.m., the freezing rain will change to rain.

Temperatures will rise from 31-36 over the area to 35-40 with strong southwest wind.

Rain will continue Wednesday, but the southwest wind will go to the northwest midday to afternoon.

After highs in the 40s to near 50, temperatures will quickly fall to near 30 to the lower 30s.

On the back edge of the rain a change-over to some snow, sleet & freezing rain before ending.

This mix would occur in the 2-7 p.m. time frame northwest to southeast before ending.

A thin glaze to dusting of light snow & sleet is possible in some places.

After a dry Thursday, freezing rain should overspread the area Thursday night-early Friday morning with temperatures in the 27-32 range.

It should reach areas south of Greater Lafayette by 11 p.m., then move northward, overspreading the entire viewing area by 3 a.m.

It will change to rain from south to north with time.

The entire area should be in all rain by 9:30 a.m. Friday as temperatures rise to 34-40 over the area.

Up to 0.1" glaze is possible.

Winds will be strong from the southeast gusting +30 mph.

It looks like a rainy afternoon with southwest winds 15-25 mph & highs 44-55 northwest to southeast over the area.

If you are prone to aches & pains from low pressure, Friday may be rough as surface low pivots through central Illinois.

Rain may end as brief snow Saturday morning, but any accumulation that can occur looks light as temperatures fall to 31-35.

Total rainfall/liquid Tuesday night-Saturday will run 1.5-2.5".

Saturday looks gray with north winds to 25 mph & highs 35-41.

We should actually be back to the 41-46 range Monday with more sun after slow clearing & 36-42 Sunday (27-30 in the morning).
