WEATHER ALERT: Severe storms expected late this afternoon and evening

Central Illinois Under Winter Weather Advisory; Cancellations Underway

Central Illinois snow

CHAMPAIGN – The National Weather Service Central Illinois office said on Wednesday afternoon that our area can expect snow into Thursday morning. However, rain will dominate southeast Illinois with freezing rain and sleet will be possible near I-70 Wednesday night which will lower snow accumulations there. Farther north snow will become lighter overnight and taper off from the southwest on Thursday.


Ahead of the snowfall, some agencies cancelled service and meetings for Wednesday night. Here are a few into the Illinois Newsroom:

CHAMPAIGN-URBANA: The Dog Training Club if Champaign-Urbana is cancelling classes scheduled for tonight.
