The Big Chill; Below Zero Temperatures
The National Weather Service has issued a Windchill Watch from Sunday night through Tuesday morning.
Snow developing late Saturday night that favors highest snow accumulations along the I-80 corridor, while much of central Illinois only may see a brief period of light snow well after midnight into early Sunday morning. This resulting in a minor accumulation of one half inch or less. Higher amounts will be focused along and north of the I-74 corridor, where 1 to 2 inches will be likely. We may see isolated totals approaching 3 inches across the far north around Lacon and Henry.
News 25 and WHOI 19 Chief Meteorologist Chuck Collins says beginning tomorrow night, we'll see about 36 hours of below zero temperatures.
Reports indicate another arctic blast of air is expected from Sunday night through Tuesday. Dangerous wind chills of 15 to 25 below zero can be expected from Monday morning into Wednesday. The coldest wind chills will occur Monday night into Tuesday morning.
