The National Weather Service in Lincoln issued an update mid-afternoon on Thursday, indicating that the changeover to sleet then snow, has occurred across Central Illinois.

They indicate the snow will end from west to east, between 6 and 10pm this evening, adding that gusty winds and high snowfall rates have combined to reduce visibility below 1/2 mile across most locations. 2 to 4 inches of total snow is expected thru tonight.  Travel has become treacherous, according to the Weather Service.

Those gusty winds tonight will bring wind chills down as low as -8, and continue tomorrow with sunny skies but wind chills staying as low as -8.

The Regional Radio listening area continues under a Winter Weather Advisory until 9pm tonight, and Macon County and points north remain under a Winter Storm Warning also until 9pm tonight.
