Sunny skies and breezy westerly winds prevailed over central
and southeast Illinois today. Temperatures struggled to
climb much today due to the chilly westerly winds, with

High pressure will build into the region tonight, bringing quiet
weather and cooler temperatures. After the high pushes to the east on
Friday, a strengthening storm system will spread the first wintry

Iowa and northern Illinois, into southern Wisconsin, and the lower
Great Lakes. Further south, a mix of rain and snow is expected for
much of central Illinois, with accumulations quickly tapering off to
the south. Behind this system, unseasonably cold weather will move
into the region, for the remainder of the weekend.

across the Midwest. Highs on Friday will range from the mid 30s
in northern Iowa, to the mid 50s along the Ohio Valley.
