WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
247 PM CDT TUE SEP 23 2014
Abundant sunshine prevailed over central and southeast Illinois
today, although scattered high clouds began spreading in from the
west during the afternoon. After a cool start to the day,
temperatures had reached the lower to mid 70s by mid afternoon.
As high pressure slowly moves east out of the Midwest, a storm
system in the Plains will move toward the region. This will spread
scattered showers and thunderstorms into Missouri and Iowa
overnight, reaching Wisconsin on Wednesday. However, this system
will be weakening with time, and dry conditions should prevail again
over all of the Midwest by late Wednesday evening. Temperatures will
continue a slow warming trend over the next few days.
Regional low temperatures tonight will range from the mid 40s over
much of Indiana, to the upper 50s in northwest Missouri. Highs on
Wednesday will be in the 70s across the Midwest, with the warmest
temperatures across Missouri and western Kentucky.
