Advisories and Watches in place for Upcoming Cold and Snow

More winter weather on the way for the Stateline area causing several watches and advisories to be in place.

The first is a Wind Chill Advisory that will go into effect for the entire Stateline late Sunday night through Monday morning with wind chills down to -25 possible Monday morning. Winds will increase from the northwest, gusting up to 30mph, creating dangerous wind chills. If you have to travel or go outside make sure to dress accordingly and cover all exposed parts, frostbite can occur quickly under these conditions.

The second is a Winter Storm Warning that will go into effect for Jo Daviess, Carroll, Whiteside, and Stephenson Counties Monday at 6pm and will last until Tuesday morning. A fast moving Alberta clipper will track across the Midwest dumping snow across the area. These counties look to pick up more snow than other counties, 4-6" is expected with locally more possible.

A Winter Storm Watch will go into effect for the rest of the Stateline Monday night through Tuesday morning with the first big snow of the season on the way associated with a low pressure system out of Canada. Current forecasts show about 3-5" of snow expected, with locally heavier amounts possible.

If the low's track shifts, this could also shift the heavier bands of snow. We will continue to track this system and post updates.
