WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
311 PM CST Fri Dec 6 2013
Moderate to heavy snow continued to move across parts of southeast
Illinois during the mid-afternoon hours. The rest of the area was
mostly cloudy with very cold temperatures. Readings ranged from
the 15 to 20 west of I-55, to the lower 20s in east central and
southeast Illinois at 300 pm.
The storm system responsible for the snow and ice in southern
Illinois will move away from the region this evening, allowing a
strong arctic high pressure area to approach. This will result in
a clearing sky, but a continuation of very cold conditions. The
next chance for precipitation will be on Sunday, as a weak weather
system spreads light snow and freezing drizzle across the region.
Lows tonight, will range from below zero readings in the upper
Midwest, to single digits in Missouri and Illinois, and teens in
Indiana and western Kentucky.
Highs Saturday, will be in the single digits to lower teens in the
upper Midwest, with 20s in the rest of the region.
