WINTRY MIX INCOMING....
Monday will be quiet and cool ahead of a storm system that arrives later that night. There will be the potential for a wintry mix and some snowfall accumulation as well.
Let's start with Monday, though. We'll have plenty of sunshine to start the day with clouds coming in in the evening. It will be a chilly day, despite the sun:
Temperatures will then drop to near and below the freezing mark as our next storm system approaches. Monday night into early Tuesday morning there will be the chance for a wintry mix and snowfall accumulation. There could be some slick roads for the morning commute Tuesday, especially near and north of Highway 30:
There is still some uncertainty on the exact track of the storm and therefore how much snow will truly accumulate. However, we're starting to see some more agreement among the models.
Here's a look at the totals on the GFS:
Across much of Iowa and Illinois the snow will change over to rain for the remainder of the day Tuesday through Wednesday.
Temperatures will be bumped up above freezing to the low 40s on Tuesday:
The low pressure system with this storm will be closest to the area on Wednesday:
And temperatures will get bumped up as a result:
Precipitation will wind down Wednesday night and there will be some heavy rain in spots -- especially by November standards:
The remainder of the week will be dry, including Thanksgiving!
