Expect snow to continue this morning and become heavy before noon. Areas from Galesburg toward Bloomington and Champaign may see 4 to 5 inches, with 2 to 4 inches to the southwest of this band. The snow will taper off by late afternoon or early evening.

A snow advisory means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibility and use caution while driving.
