Winter storm to impact travel to Colts game

Radar images this morning show the storm heading head

The National Weather Service in the Quad Cities has issued a Winter Weather Advisory starting at 6 p.m. Friday through 6 p.m. Saturday.

Light snow accumulation appears possible north and west of Raleigh with amounts ranging from a dusting to as much as 2 inches, the highest possibly near the Virginia border. Some of the snow will become mixed with rain on Saturday, mainly in east central IL and areas along and south of I-70. A heavy, wet snow is expected with the storm as temperatures hover near the freezing mark. If you have travel planned, you may want to adjust your travel time to avoid the storm. One factor that may make for relatively better road conditions is that the bulk of the snow will accumulate at night when the roads are less traveled which will give plenty of room for road crews to continue to clear the roads overnight.

Weather service forecasters say the Chicago area can expect between 1 and 3 inches of snow late Friday and into Saturday.

Temperatures are expected to remain cold through the weekend.
