A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for parts of Illinois from Friday evening into late Saturday night.

Those in central, east central, southeast and west central Illinois can expect slippery road conditions and snow.

Five to seven inches of snow will be possible starting around 12 a.m. Saturday for the Charleston area.

WEIU Newswatch’s Local Forecaster Everett Lau said people should keep up-to-date with road conditions via the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Lau said blowing snow should not be much of an issue.

“It’ll be a heavy, wet snow,” Lau said. “That’ll make shoveling any snow even more difficult.”
