QUINCY (WGEM) - Weather Alert: The National Weather Service has canceled many winter weather advisories early. However, Schuyler and Scott County in Illinois continue to have a winter weather advisory until 6 PM this evening. Unless it is canceled early as well, which I do expect.

A low pressure system to our south pushed a shield of accumulating snow through the region this morning. Snowfall amounts have been sent into the National Weather Service. Below, you can see a few examples.

Here are a few examples of snowfall amounts that were sent into the National Weather Service.

The bulk of the snow is done for the day. Through the rest of the day, some light spotty snow showers will be possible. As daytime high rise into the mid 30s, a few spotty light rain/snow showers will be possible as well. Mid 30 degree temperatures will help mitigate impacts on the roads. Wind speeds have been increasing a bit since this morning. Wind gusts of 25 mph will be possible. Thankfully, with heavy wet snow, blowing snow will not be an issue.

Tonight will be colder with lows in the teens to low 20s, depending on where you live in the Tri-States. Therefore, the snow that melts today will refreeze tonight. Late tonight into tomorrow morning, there will probably be some slick spots on bridges and overpasses, less traveled roads, and sidewalks and driveways.
