Windy with Sleet, Freezing Rain & Snow Across Area

February 21st, 2013 at 11:39 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Snow is falling in our far & northeast with lots of sleet elsewhere & quite a bit of freezing rain in our southern half.

At WLFI, we have a mix of sleet & freezing rain with 0.05″ of glaze ice & 1.2″ of snow & sleet measured.  Generally, 1-2″ of snow & sleet have been reported across the area so far with 0.05″ of glaze ice (mainly in the southern half of the viewing area).

Winds are gusty with sustained winds at 15-25 mph & gusts as high as 38 mph.  These winds will tend to decrease somewhat towards morning.

Temperatures will rise overnight-tomorrow morning with patchy freezing drizzle becoming drizzle (once snow, sleet & freezing rain band pulls away).

Cold surface air has wedged in the central & eastern parts of the viewing area with temperatures in the middle 20s, but temperature has risen quickly to 31 in our far south as of 11:45 p.m.  It is 34 in southeastern Illinois & that air will tend to get pulled northeastward with time tonight-Friday morning.

  32. Mary Anne Best says:

    Can’t believe I slept through the thunder! Hubs said it shook the house, low and deep rumbles. William what kind of totals do you have out your way? I’m guessing 2 inches here. East windows are covered with ice. Temp just jumped up a degree to 29*. Guess who is staying inside today??? Me + ice is a dangerous duo!

    MA in REM

  33. Mary Anne Best says:

    Jim….Chad would love to have those totals whenever you post them here fire an email to him at

  34. James says:

    East Central Fountain Cty. received maybe 3/4 of an inch (not official) of sleet/snow. Right now it’s drizzling, don’t know temp.

  35. Teri says:

    Sleet is rock hard on the car:(

  36. Lisa says:

    MA…not only was the thunder rumbling (At 2 am CST I thought a plow was going down our road…it wasn’t) but a big flash of lightning lit up the entire outside. It wasn’t just a streak in the sky. It was like someone turned on the sun! I was awake checking the weather on the computer because I couldn’t sleep when I expereinced it. It was also sleeting/freezing rain at the time because I heard it hitting the house. That is my early morning weather observation. We have snow but I don’t know the amount but I can still see blades of grass poking through the crusty snow.

  37. Cliff says:

    Yeah I heard/saw a big flash crash boom about 3-45 AM!! Weird!!

  38. TomL says:

    Crazy! I heard rumbles of thunder last night. Yet again, another dusting of snow that didn’t even cover the grass. It’ll all be melted by this afternoon. What a miserable wannabe impression of a winter we’ve had. (once again)

  39. Jim says:

    Ok Mary Ann. Hey tell your buddy William he never updated the road condition over there. Total mess.

  40. william in remington says:

    Jim sorry busy this morning. When I posted the thunder I had not been outside to know how the roads were. The only plowing done around here usually is on I65. lol

  41. Jim says:

    William I saw. Man I understand they have to keep the I open but it was bad. Thx for all you do.
