A band of light to moderate rainfall continued to move across central
and southeast Illinois late this morning. Winds were out of the
southeast at 15 to 25 mph, gusting up to 30 mph in Decatur.
Temperatures remained fairly steady in the upper 40s to low 50s
throughout the area.
Rain showers will continue to progress northeastward across the
region today as a low pressure circulation moves across Missouri
into Illinois, with a few thunderstorms developing ahead of the
low this afternoon as well. Colder air will filter in on the back
side of the departing storm system, changing the rain to a period of
light snow across Iowa, Wisconsin, and northern Illinois later
tonight into Tuesday. Dry conditions will resume over the region by
midweek as high pressure builds southward into the Midwest.
High temperatures today will range from the upper 40s near Lake
Michigan to around 60 degrees across Missouri.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the low 20s in northwest
Iowa to the mid 40s in central Indiana.
