You can see I'm expecting a few scattered snow showers to take place tonight. Right now looking for the snow between 9:pm and 10:pm EST. We will look for a low around 12* degrees with winds between 5 and 10 mph. This means a night time wind chill of 7* to -7* degrees! So dress warm if your heading out cause it's gonna be cold!
You can see the snow just to our west in the radar image below. Soon this will be entering the WLFI viewing area.

I have many snowfall reports from the south western area of IL, of snowfall between 0.8" inches and 2" Inches. This is why I believe that between tonight and tomorrow we could see anywhere between a trace and 2" inches area wide. However I believe that most areas will be less then an inch!
Here's tonight through Monday's outlook below.
Monday we will look for a few snow showers across the viewing area. Clouds will try to break in the afternoon hours however overall we will be mostly cloudy. Highs will be in the low to middle 30s with lows Monday night around 20* degrees. Wind between 10 and 15 mph which means we can expect a night time wind chill around 6* degrees.
Tuesday we will look for partly cloudy skies across the viewing area. We can expect highs around 31* degrees with a low Tuesday night around 16* degrees. Winds will be light between 3 and 5 mph.
So that's the weather story for the viewing area tonight bloggers. Also it looks like the Green Bay Packers are going to the Superbowl. Who do you think will be the winner of the PIT, VS NYJ, game??
Tonight is a cold winters night that is perfect for football! ;) Take care bloggers.
I'll check back soon.
