The National Weather Service in the Quad Cities says the winter weather advisory in effect for the southern half of the WVIK listening area will continue until 6 PM.

Forecasters say an elongated band of snow across the south half of Iowa and extending across northern Illinois will continue into the afternoon. Additional snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches will be possible across the advisory area until the snow starts to end from west to east by mid to late afternoon. The accumulating snow will end west of the Mississippi River after 3 PM.

The counties in the advisory area are: in Iowa - Keokuk, Washington, Louisa, Henry, and Des Moines, and in Illinois - Mercer, Henderson, Warren, Hancock, and McDonough. It includes the cities of Sigourney, Washington, Wapello, Fairfield, Mount Pleasant, Burlington, Keosauqua, Fort Madison, Aledo, Oquawka, Monmouth, Carthage, and Macomb.

  • TIMING...Areas of snow continuing through late afternoon,  although accumulating snow should end west of the Mississippi  River after 3 PM CST.
  • SNOW ACCUMULATIONS...Most areas will get up to an additional inch. Some  areas in far southeastern Iowa and into west central Illinois  may get up to an additional 2 inches by late afternoon.
  • IMPACTS...Roadways and sidewalks will be snow-covered and  slippery, potentially leading to travel difficulties.
  • PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibility. Use caution while driving.
