First Alert Weather: Cold Then a weekend warm up

First Alert Weather: Cold Then a weekend warm up

Partly cloudy skies with plenty of high level cirrus clouds, will tiresome the sunshine Saturday, while Sunday will become partly to mostly cloudy. Unfortunately in some places that precip will come in the form of snow. Winter Weather Advisories will also go into effect for Smyth and Tazewell counties in southwest Virginia and for Pike county in Kentucky.

Snow with embedded heavier bands will spread east across the region this afternoon. "We have a pretty good stream of moisture coming into the area", National Weather Service meteorologist Michelle Cohen said. A heavier band of snow could produce a quick inch of snow. Rain will continue into this evening eventually mixing with then changing to snow late tonight. That is where we will see the best chance for rain and the best chance for that rain to switch over to a little wet snow. He said the higher elevations in the counties will begin to see snow around 7 p.m. The highways were classified as winter conditions exist, as of Saturday morning. The low tonight will be near 35 degrees. As we warm up the rain/snow mix will turn to just rain. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.

WHERE... Portions of east central and northeast Iowa and north central and northwest IL.

A Flood Advisory is in effect in Chouteau County until 4 PM Saturday. However, isolated snow or rain showers greet our Sunday morning. Snowfall accumulation of around in inch is possible through today. Look for "spotty rain or snow showers" on Sunday, Hoffman said.

Accumulations of 3 to 6 inches of snow are expected along several area passes by Saturday, including Sexton, Stage and Smith. "Locations outside of the watch, like Rockford and Belvidere, should see light amounts of snow, generally under 1".
