WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
258 PM CST WED JAN 21 2015
Cloudy skies were widespread across central Illinois into the
afternoon hours, although southeast Illinois saw a fair amount of
sunshine into early afternoon. Because of that, locations south of
I-70 reached into the 40s. Elsewhere, lower to mid 30s were common
through the day.
A weakening frontal boundary across Illinois and Indiana will
continue to produce some light rain and snow into early evening,
but this will diminish before midnight. However, the precipitation
will linger overnight over northern Indiana, downstream of Lake
Michigan. As high pressure builds over the Midwest on Thursday, the
lingering clouds will begin to diminish. Temperatures will remain
above normal over most of the region for the remainder of the week.
Regional low temperatures tonight will mainly be in the mid to upper
20s, although teens will prevail over Wisconsin. Highs on Thursday
will range from near 30 degrees over Wisconsin, to the mid 40s in
southern Missouri, and western Kentucky.
