Snow, sleet, rain forecast for Illinois

Published: Monday, Feb. 17, 2014 8:00 a.m. CST

CHICAGO (AP) — Winter isn't done yet with Illinois.

The National Weather Service says parts of the state could get blanketed with up to half a foot of new snow Monday.

In the Chicago area, the snow is expected to start coming down the hardest late in the morning. And high temperatures for the day in the region should be in the upper 20s.

In central Illinois, many communities will see slightly higher temperatures — of just above freezing. That could mean a sloppy mix of sleet and snow.

In the southern portions of Illinois, temperatures should bounce into the mid-40s and steady rain is possible in places.

Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing across Illinois by the week's end. That means melting snow and the potential for another hazard — flooding.

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
