WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
300 PM CST TUE DEC 1 2015
Earlier clouds gave way to sunshine over most of central Illinois
this morning and persisted through the day. Clouds held on longer
south of I-70, but these areas also saw more sunshine as the
afternoon progressed. Southwest winds gusted over 20 mph at times, i
areas north of I-72. By mid afternoon, highs had reached the mid to
upper 40s over most of central and southeast Illinois.
As a strong area of low pressure aloft moves through the Midwest,
periodic rain and snow showers will affect the region tonight and
Wednesday. Most accumulations will be minor, but totals around an
inch or so will be possible over northeast Illinois, and northern
Indiana. Any lingering precipitation will exit the region Wednesday
evening, and high pressure will build in from the west, resulting
in dry conditions for the end of the week.
Regional low temperatures tonight will range from the mid 20s to
lower 30s, coolest over Wisconsin and northern Iowa. Highs on
Wednesday will range from the mid 30s over Wisconsin and northern
Iowa, to the upper 40s in southern Missouri, and western Kentucky.
