WINTER WEATHER ON THE WAY
Winter weather is on the way. At news time the National Weather service had issued a winter weather advisory for Bond County and counties to the north, south and east, and a winter storm warning for Madison County and counties to the west. According to the latest data Bond County could expect anywhere from 1-3 inches of Snow/Sleet and .1 inch of freezing rain/drizzle. Warm air will take control of the upper atmosphere while cold air remains at the surface. This will set up the freezing rain/drizzle throughout the day on Thursday. The most likely timing for Bond County to start seeing precipitation will be late morning into early afternoon and continuing into the evening hours. However precipitation is possible anytime on Thursday. Untreated surfaces are likely to be slick. Tune to WGEL Radio for the latest information on this and all storms that affect our area.
