Colder air continues pouring into the region with temperatures this morning dropping to near 0º and sub zero wind chills. Much of the day will see a mix of sunshine and clouds with a dry period before more snow opportunity later today. As an area of low pressure passes to our north, isolated areas of light snow will pass through the Valley by later afternoon and remain through the evening. Any accumulation would be very minor (well under an inch) and primarily for our northeast half. Tonight lows drop once again to near 0º with wind chills nearing -20º; a Wind Chill Advisory is already in place for our Illinois counties in anticipation of these dangerous wind chill readings. Tomorrow is even colder as highs struggle to reach double digits and sub zero wind chill values remain with a blustery north wind. More snow chances arrive by Friday night with accumulating snow expected of a couple inches possible through early Saturday. Another shot of snow arrives to finish the weekend on Sunday as an additional 1-2" of snow is possible. We'll remain on a bitterly cold and periodically snowy trend through next week.
