Right now, general consensus is that precip area of about 4-6'' will occur in Central IL back into Iowa and skimming Missouri and Minnesota. Banding of snow is occurring in Central IL, with snowfall rates increasing , thus decreasing visibility.
Back south, models have set track so storm will move through N. Gulf of Mexico. Precip hotspots look to be East Texas through South Louisiana, then tapering off.
Trouble arises w/ potential nor'easter situation.
General thinking ATTM is storm missing Upper Northeast and moving out to sea. Will have to watch closely.
