203 PM CST TUE DEC 16 2014
Cloudy skies and blustery westerly winds prevailed over central and
southeast Illinois this afternoon. Winds gusted as high as 35
MPH, and brought colder air into the region. Temperatures fell from
the morning highs, into the lower to middle 30s by mid-afternoon.
Low pressure will push into the eastern Great Lakes tonight,
allowing winds to gradually relax. Plenty of low clouds are
expected to linger overnight, and into Wednesday morning. By late
Wednesday, the next weather system will quickly approach from the
southwest. This will spread light snow across Missouri, and into
the southern half of Illinois, for Wednesday night and Thursday
morning. Any snow accumulations with this weather system should be
minor. High pressure will keep dry and cold conditions in place
farther north, over the remainder of the Midwest, through the end of
the work week.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the lower teens in central
Iowa, to the lower 30s in southern Indiana. Highs on Wednesday
will range from the upper 20s in southern Wisconsin, to the lower
40s in southern Missouri.
