Mostly cloudy skies were present across central and southeast
Illinois this evening. Light easterly winds occurred, and

An upper level disturbance will continue to progress eastward across
Missouri and Illinois, with mid level and high level clouds spreading
over the region. Meanwhile, the surface high over Illinois will

River. Further east, clouds will be on the increase, but conditions
are expected to remain mostly dry, with only a few scattered flurries
possible across the region. The high will continue to control the
weather across the Midwest through the weekend, before an approaching
low pressure system spreads rain into the region by Monday.
Low temperatures will mainly be in the 20s, with warmer readings in
the low to mid 30s across Missouri.
High temperatures on Saturday will range from the low 30s in the
southern Great Lakes to the mid 40s across southern Missouri and
