(WMBD Marcus Bailey)
A historic storm is taking aim on central Illinois as we head into Tuesday and Wednesday.  A BLIZZARD WARNING is now in effect for most of the WMBD 31 viewing area until 12PM Wed.  Heavy snow will start late afternoon Tuesday, with some areas seeing 1-3″ of snow accumulation per hour.  Total snowfall accumulation will be around 14-20″ area wide, with locally higher amounts possible.  Winds will pick up to 20-30 mph during the afternoon Tuesday and continue into Wednesday, allowing for blowing and drifting around the area.  This will be a very high impact, and dangerous storm.  It is recommended that if you don’t need to be outside, to please stay indoors.  More updates to come….
