Snow Forecast Monday. Meteorologist Chris Tomer

Most of the snow is expected to stop by Wednesday night, though snow will continue throughout Wednesday night in northern ME and North Carolina. Snowfall of 1 to 3 inches is expected Tuesday into early Tuesday night, January 16, 2018.

In addition, the weather service has issued a wind-chill advisory for East Central Illinois from 6 p.m. Monday until 12 p.m. Tuesday.

A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions are occurring. Those going outdoors should wear hats and gloves, according to the weather service. As temperatures drop to or below freezing, the rain will quickly transition into a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow late Monday evening and Monday night.

Clouds will gradually clear out by Wednesday as well, during which the temperature will be below freezing with a high of 31 in Lee County. This weekend will be much warmer with high temperatures near 70°F Sunday.

Sunday: A 20 percent chance of showers.

Light snow or flurries are possible Tuesday evening, though no accumulation is expected.

Road conditions have generally approved elsewhere across the region due to a combination of road treatments, dry air, and strong north winds.

Temperatures don't look to rise above freezing until late morning hours on Thursday which could prolong any slick spots that form, especially in shady areas until that time frame. Total snow accumulations of up to one inch are expected.

Parts of Central Texas remain under a Winter Storm Warning, while other parts have been downgraded to a Winter Weather Advisory.

The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin, forecasters said.

Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 41.

Light snow could persist for up to 6 hours.

Wind chill advisory: A wind chill advisory will be in effect from midnight tonight until 11 a.m. Wednesday.
