Seasons First Accumulating Snow Prompts Winter Weather Advisory

The Stateline's first snow arrives early Sunday, and prompts a Winter Weather Advisory for the entire area.

The snow will arrive before day break Sunday morning as it moves in from the west and spreads east. It will be a wet and slushy type snow, and will bring snow accumulations from 1-4" across the area. The higher totals rill range from eastern Iowa to western Winnebago county, with 2-4" more likely. While southeastern areas will most likely see 1-2" of the white stuff. As mentioned, it will be a heavy wet snow, and will fall at a moderate pace through the morning and afternoon hours. This could cause hazardous travel at times as it could drop visibility and cause slick roads that are snow or slush covered. It will also be hard to shovel, so take it slow and take breaks if you plan to shovel your driveway.

Use extra caution while driving, as we all remember our winter driving skills. Also, more accidents occur in light snow falls because we don't take them as seriously as high total events.

The snow could even mix with a bit of rain allowing for a light winter mix to drizzle as temperatures warm into the mid 30's by the late afternoon

. The snow will end around dinner time tomorrow, and we actually see sunshine arrive Monday with highs in the 40's!
