Hazardous Weather Outlook For CARROLL County,IL
451 AM CDT Fri Apr 26 2019 DAY ONE TODAY AND TONIGHT Moderate to major flooding will continue along the Mississippi River. Please see the latest Flood Statements and Flood Warnings for details DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY A strong spring storm system moving through the region Saturday may bring accumulating snow into portion of eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois from late morning through early evening. The potential for at least a few inches of wet snow accumulation looks to be greatest along and north of the highway 20 corridor. There is the chance for higher amounts if the storm system can track further south and produce snowfall at rates of an inch or more per hour to overcome the warm surfaces. Lighter snow amounts may occur further south to the highway 30 corridor. Strong winds gusting up to 40 MPH may combine with the heavy wet snow to reduce visibility and produce minor tree damage and power outages. Travel may become challenging in these conditions by Saturday afternoon. Stay tuned for further updates and possible winter weather headlines that may be issued as this storm becomes more certain. Away from the snow, strong east to southeast winds gusting 35 to 40 MPH Saturday morning will switch to the northeast and north and gust up to 45 MPH as the afternoon progresses. These strong winds combined with rain may still produce travel impacts. Cold air spilling into the area behind this system may lead to temperatures dropping below freezing by early Sunday morning across eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois, especially along and north of Interstate 80. Thunderstorms will be possible Sunday night, and again Tuesday night into Wednesday. It is too soon to determine the potential for severe weather. Locally heavy rain may occur with these bouts of storms which may eventually aggravate ongoing river flooding situations. Moderate to major flooding will continue along the Mississippi River. Please see the latest Flood Statements and Flood Warnings for details. SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
