A potent late-season winter storm is still on track to impact the area very late tonight into much of Monday.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in place for both Lee and Whiteside counties until 7pm Monday evening.
Snow will begin late this evening after 10pm and continue through much of Monday. The heaviest will fall between midnight and 6am Monday morning.
Here is the current storm impact timeline.
Most of us will fall in the 5-7" range in terms of total snowfall amounts. This will be a light powdery snow making it easier to shovel.
Winds could get gusty at times during the late morning and into the afternoon hours causing a little bit of blowing and drifting, especially in open areas, but significant impacts from the winds are not expected.
Looking longer range, the snow will not stick around for long as temperatures head back to well above freezing levels by the end of this week.
