Weather Summary For Central And Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
1238 PM CST Sun Dec 4 2016

A storm system has spread snow and a wintry mix across central
Illinois this morning. The heavier snow has remained across
northwest Illinois, where 5 inches has fallen at Galesburg. A rain
and snow mix has been seen roughly along and south of I-72, with
mainly snow to the north. Temperatures around the area at late
morning, were in the low to mid 30s across central Illinois, while
southeast Illinois reported low 40s.

This winter storm will continue to bring a mix of rain and snow
to the region today. Total snow accumulations, from 1 to 4 inchs,
with some locally higher amounts, will be possible over eastern
Iowa and the northern third of Illinois, particularly on grassy
and elevated surfaces. Some snow accumulations will not last long,
as temperatures will warm above freezing today causing a lot of
the snow to melt. The snow will end from west to east this
afternoon and  evening. Southwest winds tomorrow look to keep
temperatures warm enough for the precipitation from a weather
system moving in tomorrow night and Tuesday, to remain as rain
across most of the area. However, areas northwest of the Illinois
River could see some snow with this system. After that, Arctic air
will move into the area mid week.

High temperatures today, will top out in the mid 30s to  mid 40s
across the Midwest. While lows tonight, will drop into the mid 20s
to mid 30s around the area.
