NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
620 PM CST SAT DEC 7 2013
Mostly clear skies and unseasonably cold air prevailed over central
and southeast Illinois on Saturday. Arctic high pressure centered
over the upper Midwest, was responsible for the cold temperatures.
Highs reached the lower to middle 20s.
The strong arctic high pressure ridge will shift east of the area on
Sunday, bringing a continuation of very cold conditions. The next
chance for precipitation spread in from the southwest on Sunday, as a
weak weather system brings light snow and freezing drizzle to
the region. Snow accumulations of a few inches are expected in Iowa
and Wisconsin, with less than an inch expected further south.
Low temperatures tonight will drop into the single digits and teens
for much of the Midwest. Highs on Sunday will range from the teens
in northern Iowa, to the lower 30s along the Ohio Valley.
