WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
256 PM CST SAT JAN 24 2015
Abundant afternoon sunshine allowed temperatures to rise well into
the 40s across central and southeast Illinois. Areas from near
Springfield westward even managed to reach the lower 50s.
A storm system over the Dakotas will be racing southeast overnight,
reaching western Illinois by sunrise before heading toward the Ohio
Valley. Rain will develop ahead of this system, then change to snow
from northwest to southeast as the day progresses. The greatest
accumulations of a few inches are most likely from northeast Iowa
to central Indiana. Locations closer to the Ohio River will likely
remain all rain during the day, then change to snow in the evening
as the precipitation ends. While Monday will be dry over most of
the Midwest, the next storm system will bring some light snow to the
Great Lakes region.
Low temperatures across the Midwest tonight will range from the
teens over much of Wisconsin, to the upper 30s in Missouri. Highs on
Sunday will range from the 20s over Wisconsin, to the lower 50s in
southeast Missouri. However, many areas will see falling
temperatures in the afternoon.
