NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
413 AM CST FRI JAN 30 2015
Mostly clear skies were present across central and southeast
Illinois early this morning. Winds were out of the northwest at 5 to
15 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph in Decatur. Temperatures ranged from
23 degrees in Galesburg to 34 degrees in Lawrenceville.
High pressure will shift across the area today, bringing quiet and
cooler conditions. The quiet weather will be brief, as a storm
system developing over the Plains will spread snow northeast across
portions of the Midwest on Saturday and Sunday. Several inches of
accumulation are possible, from northern Missouri east into Illinois
and Indiana, by late Sunday. Much colder air will settle in over the
region behind this system, with below normal temperatures to start
off the work week.
Highs today will range from the low 20s in southern Wisconsin to the
mid 40s in southern Missouri.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the low teens over northeast
Indiana to the low 30s over central Missouri.
