Light snow will spread into the area during this evening after

freezing rain during mid or late evening and then diminish toward

parts of central and southwest Illinois should use caution and

Illinois - Special Weather Statement

Counties: Alexander; Franklin; Hamilton; Jackson; Jefferson; Johnson; Perry; Pulaski; Union; Wayne; Williamson

...Very light wintry mix possible over parts of southern Illinois
and southeast Missouri tonight and early Thursday.
A dynamic weather system will likely produce a light wintry mix
over portions of southeast Missouri and southern Illinois tonight
into early Thursday morning.
Temperatures tonight will be close to the freezing mark as the
precipitation moves in from west to east.
At this time, any accumulations of snow, sleet, or freezing rain
are expected to be extremely isolated and should not pose a
significant travel concern. Regardless, drivers should still be
watchful for any slick spots on elevated road surfaces, such as
bridges, late tonight.
The best chance for seeing any wintry mix at all will be along and
west of the Mississippi River in southeast Missouri, and in
southern Illinois, along and west of Interstate 57.
Temperatures are expected to warm overnight, so any wintry mix
should turn back to rain quickly Thursday morning, limiting any
further travel concerns.
