NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
715 PM CST FRI JAN 30 2015
Sunny skies and seasonable temepratures prevailed across central and
southeast Illinois on Friday, as high pressure drifted overhead.
Highs were in the middle to upper 30s.
A winter storm system will be moving out of the southwest United
States this weekend, spreading precipitation across a large portion
of the Midwest. Rain and snow will spread into northern Missouri
and central Illinois by Saturday afternoon, but most of the
precipitation over the region will be in the form of snow,
for Saturday night and Sunday. Several inches of accumulation are
likely from southern Iowa, across northern and central Illinois and
Indiana. Locations further south, closer to the Ohio River, will see
mixed precipitation or all rain, miminizing snow totals in that area.
After the storm system exits Sunday evening, very cold air will
spread into the region for the start of the work week.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the teens in northern
Illinois, to the lower 30s in central Missouri. Highs on Saturday
will reach the mid 30s to mid 40s for much of the Midwest.
