NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
300 PM CST FRI JAN 23 2015
While cloud cover across central and southeast Illinois was
widespread through midday, the clouds rapidly dissipated west of I-55
by mid afternoon. Temperatures were in the 30s over the area,
highest from Peoria to Jacksonville westward.
A weak frontal boundary will move through the Midwest late tonight
and Saturday morning, but little precipitation will accompany it.
More widespread rain and snow will occur south of the Ohio River
this evening, as a storm system moves through the southeast United
States. A stronger system will be approaching the region from the
northwest late this weekend, bringing better chances of rain or
snow. Areas from northeast Iowa, to northern Illinois and Indiana,
are most likely to see accumulating snow from this system.
Regional low temperatures tonight will mainly be in the 20s. Highs
on Saturday will range from the upper 30s near the Great Lakes, to
the mid 50s in western Missouri, and southwest Iowa.
