WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
340 PM CST SUN FEB 1 2015
A major winter storm impacted central Illinois today, bringing a
mixed bag of precipitation. Areas along and north of a Ruhville to
Bloomington line experienced the heaviest snow, with amounts of 5
to 8 inches common. Locations along the I-72 corridor from
Jacksonville to Danville saw lighter snow amounts of 2 to 3 inches
along with some light rain at times. Further south, little or no
snow occured along and south of I-70.
The low pressure responsible for the wintry weather will slowly
depart the Midwest tonight. Light snow and strong northerly winds
on its back side will lead to hazardous driving conditons across
Iowa and the central and northern sections of Illinois and
Indiana, so motorists are advised to drive with extreme caution if
planning travel across these areas. High pressure will bring
clearing and much colder weather across the entire region on Monday.
After that, a weak weather disturbance may trigger additional light
snow across Iowa and portions of central and northern Illinois Monday
night: however, accumulations are expected to be minor.
Overnight low temperatures, will range from the single digits below
zero across Iowa, to the upper 20s in southern Kentucky.
High temperatures on Monday, will range from the teens along and
north of I-74, to the middle 30s across southern Missouri.
