First Alert: Tracking rain, sleet, snow tonight as temps drop
(KFVS) - We are tracking a mix of rain sleet and snow across the Heartland this evening.
Chief Meteorologist Grant Dade says temperatures are falling rapidly, as well.
Most areas will only receive around a half-inch of snow, but there will be a few localized areas that receive between 1 and 2 inches, mainly in our eastern counties.
Water on the area roads will likely begin to freeze, especially on bridges and overpasses, so travel impacts are expected.
The other story will be the frigid wind chills through the night into tomorrow morning. Lows by morning will reach the single digits northwest to the middle teens southeast.
Wind chills will range from -5 to 5 above zero.
Thursday will be partly cloudy breezy and very cold.
We will see high temperatures only reach the lower to middle 20s. Winds will be out of the north around 15 miles per hour, producing wind chills in the middle teens during the afternoon hours.
A winter weather advisory has been issued through Thursday morning for several counties in southern Illinois and western Kentucky.
