Illinois and nearby states tonight through Monday, with
a few thunderstorms possible over Kentucky and southern parts of
Missouri, Illinois, Indiana. This is due to developing low pressure

Great Lakes by dawn Monday. This will swing a cold front eastward
across Illinois Sunday night, and across Indiana and the Ohio river
valley on Monday. Expect rain to mix with and change to light snow
showers overnight Sunday night into Monday. Many locations throughout
Missouri and Illinois could see over an inch of rain this weekend.
