The National Weather Service in Lincoln issued a Special Weather Statement early this morning, saying some minor snow accumulations of less than 1 inch are possible north of I-70 into mid morning, mainly on grassy surfaces, bridges and overpasses. A better chance of snow accumulations will occur across southeast Illinois on Sunday as a fast moving weather system moves in from the northern Rockies. Between 1 and 2 inches of snow is likely along and north of I-70, with a half to 1 inch south of I-70. Higher snowfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected along and north of I-72 where winter weather advisories are posted.
The Weather Service added that some travel difficulties are possible Sunday, due to the heavy holiday traffic, plus the fact that this will be the first accumulating snow of the season in many areas. If you have plans to travel on Sunday, be sure to allow for extra time to reach your destination.
