The National Weather Service in Lincoln updated their Winter Weather Advisory for the Regional Radio listening area, just before 4 o'clock this morning.
The Weather Service says an area of light snow has spread east into west central and parts of central Illinois early this morning. The snow will overspread the rest of central Illinois by mid morning, with moderate snow possible at times from this morning through early afternoon. The snow will diminish from west to east during the mid and late afternoon hours. Between 3 and 5 inches of snow is expected across central Illinois today, with the heaviest snow east of Bloomington, and from Rantoul and Hoopeston north where 5 to 6 inches is possible.
The Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for Central Illinois, until 6pm tonight.
The Weather Service says to plan on slippery road conditions especially on untreated roadways for all of the central part of the state. While significant blowing snow is not anticipated, an increasing northwest wind during the afternoon with gusts up to 20 miles an hour, may result in some blowing an drifting snow in open and rural areas.
