This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central
Illinois and west central Illinois.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

Patchy dense freezing fog will limit visibilities to less than a
quarter mile in a few locations early this morning. In addition,
the dense fog will deposit a thin layer of ice on bridge decks,
overpasses and secondary roadways. Be alert for rapidly changing
conditions early this morning.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible late tonight. No severe
weather is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...

Showers will be likely along with a chance for thunderstorms
Monday and Tuesday. No severe weather is expected with any of the
thunderstorms. The heaviest rainfall should fall Tuesday into
Tuesday night. Current indications suggest 1.5 to 2.5 inches of
rainfall are likely, although this is subject to change.
Significant rises and/or flooding is expected to occur on area
rivers by midweek as a result of this rainfall.

As a cold front moves through the area late Tuesday night into
Wednesday, the rain is expected to change over to a wintry mix of
sleet and freezing rain, then to light snow before ending on
Wednesday morning.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central
Illinois, east central Illinois, southeast Illinois and west
central Illinois.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

Patchy dense freezing fog will limit visibilities to less than a
quarter mile in a few locations early this morning. In addition,
the dense fog will deposit a thin layer of ice on bridge decks,
overpasses and secondary roadways. Be alert for rapidly changing
conditions early this morning.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible late tonight. No severe
weather is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...

Showers will be likely with a chance for thunderstorms Monday
through Tuesday. Any thunderstorms that develop during this time
frame are not expected to be severe. The heaviest rainfall should
fall Tuesday into Tuesday night. Current indications suggest 2 to
2.5 inches of rainfall are likely, although this is subject to
change. Significant rises and/or flooding is expected to occur on
area rivers by midweek as a result of this rainfall.

Late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning a cold front will push
across parts of central and east central Illinois changing the
rain into a wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain, then over to
light snow by Wednesday morning. Based on the present timing of
the cold front, it appears areas along and west of the I-55
corridor will see the changeover late Tuesday night into Wednesday
morning with rain continuing in areas to the east and southeast.

Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
