January 3, 1 PM Weather Forecast Update

Clouding up again with rain, snow & mix in the forecast...

You can see how Dense Fog Advisories dominate the Midwest.  Benton, Newton & Jasper counties have the advisory until 1 p.m.  It is freezing fog as light freezing drizzle & mist has occurred in our area & over Illinois.

At last check, the Dense Fog Advisories over Illinois were being extended until 3 p.m. as dense fog is completely locked in.

After freezing fog & mist overnight to this morning with iciness, we are literally in a hole of sunshine between low dreary clouds west of the state line, north of the Kankakee River along & east of US 31. 

The fog has now largely eroded & the Dense Fog Advisory left in Benton, Newton & Jasper counties will be allowed to expire soon.  The dense freezing fog just lifted at the Jasper County Airport about 1 hour ago.

In these locations outside of the viewing area there is some patchy drizzle, mist & fog.  However, much of the area is sitting well with this sunshine!

The snow pack shows up were in our area, but the white west, north & northeast to east of us are low clouds:

However, with time over the next several hours, the low, gray, dreary clouds & fog will come in from Illinois & our temperatures will drop to at or below freezing.

Areas of dense fog will migrate in from the west & overspread the area.

Areas of freezing drizzle/patchy freezing rain are possible later this evening-tonight before ending as brief snow after midnight with the fog.

A dusting to coating is possible in some areas with a trace of ice.

As temperatures drop back to the 20s, watch for icy areas on roadways tonight-tomorrow morning & for reduced visibility due to dense fog.

Mostly cloudy to cloudy skies will occur tomorrow with highs 31-36 with melting of any ice on roadways.

Highs should remain in the 30s through the weekend to early next week. 

Mid-week system may stay south of our area.  We will monitor.  If it moves more to the north the trend is for more snow than rain.

Some snow showers are possible this weekend (nothing big) & snow is possible early next week, followed by a system of rain to snow.  Potential is there for an accumulating snow.  We will see & continue to monitor.
