[NOV. 24, 2004]  A storm system over Arkansas will move northeast toward the Ohio River Valley today (Wednesday). This storm system will initially bring rain to central Illinois this morning, with a changeover to wet snow toward midday as colder air is drawn into the storm system. Current indications suggest a narrow band of wet snow will accumulate from 3 to 6 inches by this evening, roughly along and west of a Springfield-to-Clinton line. The storm system will quickly push off to the northeast by tonight, with blustery and cold conditions to follow for Thanksgiving Day.
