The calendar says April but Mother Nature is looking like it will give Central Illinois another bout of winter weather this weekend. Chuck Schaffer with the National Weather Service Office in Lincoln says the area could receive more accumulating snow this weekend.
Schaffer says a weather system will move into the area on Sunday, and that could bring accumulating snow for Sunday afternoon.
The latest forecast shows possibly one to three inches of accumulating snow on Sunday. But, for those sick of winter and ready for spring, Schaffer says warmer weather appears to be coming.
Schaffer says accumulating snow in April is rare in Central Illinois. He says snow falling in April at all only happens once every few years.
