Rain, snow, and a wintry mix were seen across central and southeast
Illinois this morning. With temperatures hovering around the freezing

around the area at 11 a.m., ranged from 32 degrees at Taylorville, to
41 degrees at Mount Carmel.
A storm system moving northeast from the central Plains will continue
to spread rain and snow across the Midwest until early tomorrow
morning. Due to temperatures hovering near the freezing mark early
