A strong clipper moving across the central part of the country began its assault on central Illinois Monday afternoon. Light, fluffy snow started to accumulate and blow around on area highways in and around the town of Mattoon, Illinois, located on I-57 east of Springfield, IL.
Light snow started falling about 3pm in the afternoon and quickly lowered visibilities as winds started pushing the newly fallen snow around. Traffic was slowed, but no issues were reported during the daylight hours from the snow. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY was in effect for the Mattoon area, and a WINTER STORM WARNING was in effect just to the north. A quick hit of up to 5 inches of snow is possible in Mattoon through Tuesday morning.
