After receiving a significant snow from Saturday night through mid day on Sunday, it was nice to get back into the sunshine on Monday.  Highs were in the mid 20 over much of east central Illinois while locations in central and west central Illinois were seeing highs in the mid 30s.


Another powerful winter storm developing over the southern Plains takes aim on the Midwest overnight into tomorrow, spreading a variety of frozen precipitation across the area through Tuesday.

As temperatures aloft warm significantly, the air near the surface will remain below freezing setting the stage for freezing rain late tonight through Tuesday morning. A several hour period of light freezing rain means ice accumulation across the WCCU/FOX27 viewing area. At this point, ice accumulation of up to a tenth inch is possible through Tuesday morning. As surface temperatures rise to well above freezing around mid morning, any freezing rain/sleet will transition to just rain. This will also allow any ice to melt making for better travel conditions.

The expected build-up of ice will create very hazardous travel conditions to work or school. People with travel plans late Tuesday night and Tuesday morning should plan to add plenty of extra time to reach their destination or postpone travel until closer to midday when a transition to rain takes place.

A cold front associated with the storm sweeps through Tuesday evening bringing an end to the precipitation but returning another surge of unseasonably cold air. Morning lows fall back into the single digits with afternoon highs on the teens through midweek.

--6-10 DAY OUTLOOK--

March 8-12: Both temperature readings and precipitation are expected to be below average during the period.
