A fast-moving storm system will have two areas of snowfall: one across northern Illinois on Friday, the other across southeast Illinois on Friday night. Areas northwest of the Illinois River will have a better chance of light snow accumulation Friday, with up to a half-inch around Galesburg. Flurries will be possible in most other portions of central Illinois. Late Friday afternoon and Friday night, southeast Illinois will see a stronger wave affect them. Snowfall totals toward Lawrenceville may reach up to 1 to 2 inches, with higher totals of 2-4 inches southeast of there. The remainder of our area may see flurries lingering Friday night, with no accumulation.
