WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
304 PM CST TUE DEC 3 2013
While dense fog was widespread this morning, the fog gradually
lifted through the afternoon, only lingering near Bloomington by mid
afternoon. Low clouds were widespread, but a bit of sunshine was
occurring over west central Illinois by mid afternoon. Temperatures
reached the upper 40s to mid 50s, warmest south of I-70.
A strong cold front will sweep across the Midwest Wednesday and
Wednesday night. This will mark the start of an extended period of
cold weather. While some rain showers will accompany the front, the
main concern for precipitation will be Thursday through Friday.
Upper disturbances will move through the southern Plains, and spread
precipitation northward. Much of this will be in the form of
snow, although it will start as rain near the Ohio Valley on
Thursday. The potential exists for some freezing rain and sleet from
the Ohio Valley northward into southern Illinois. Areas further
north, from northern Missouri to the Great Lakes, should largely
miss out on this precipitation.
Regional low temperatures tonight will range from near 20 degrees
in western Iowa, to the mid 50s in western Kentucky. Highs on
Wednesday will range from the lower 20s in western Iowa, to around
70 degrees in southeast Missouri, and western Kentucky.
