High pressure will drift across the Great Lakes through the first
half of the weekend, keeping much of the Midwest dry. Lingering rain
across the Ohio Valley will diminish tonight, as a cold front
moves toward the East Coast. A few rain or snow showers may
occur across Missouri tonight and again Friday night, as weak
upper level disturbances track southeast, through the Midwest.
Temperatures will remain well below normal into Saturday, before a
warming trend begins on Sunday.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the teens in northern
Illinois, to the mid 30s in southern Missouri. Highs on Friday
will range from near 30 degrees in northern Indiana, to near 50
degrees in southern Missouri.
