Attending SNOWMAGEDON? RSVP on Facebook!
(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….
