After we saw snowfall totals well below average in the month of December, we’ll see our first chance for snow in 2019 this weekend.
Expect more cloud cover tomorrow ahead of this system, but snowfall doesn’t look likely until tomorrow night.
Some snowflakes may not initially make it to the ground on Friday night as they will fall into dry air at the surface and evaporate. However, the atmosphere will quickly become saturated and allow for snowflakes to fall to the ground.
Snow showers will continue for most of the day, including the morning and afternoon hours.
Snow looks to taper off as we head into Saturday evening and Saturday night.
Here is a more detailed look at the timing of the snowfall forecast.
This is how much snowfall I am expecting with this storm.
Lincoln, Havana, other areas south of a line from Canton to Bloomington
Peoria, central and northern Tazewell County, central and northern McLean County, northern Fulton County, southern Knox County, and south Woodford County
Galesburg, Lacon, Pontiac, central and northern Livingston County, northern Woodford County, Marshall County, Stark County, Putnam County, extreme northern Peoria County, and central and northern Knox County
We’ll continue to monitor this storm for the latest and pass along any updates on-air, online, and on social media.
