1013 AM CST SAT FEB 21 2015
The band of snowfall that pushed across central and southeast
Illinois has weakened as it began exiting the area. Some of the
highest snowfall readings were in the Springfield area, with up to a
foot of snow. Mostly cloudy skies will remain over central and
southeast Illinois, with some lingering flurries, for the remainder
of the morning. Winds remained light and variable to calm.
Temperatures were in the mid 20s to low 30s throughout the area.
A strong storm system will exit the region this afternoon, with
mostly cloudy skies resuming behind it. While warmer temperatures
will overspread the region today, another batch of very cold, arctic
air will move into the Midwest on Sunday and Monday. The cold air
will hold tightly over the Midwest for the beginning of the work week
as Canadian high pressure slides southward.
High temperatures this afternoon will range from the 20s in northwest
Wisconsin to the upper 30s across southwest Missouri.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the negative single digits
over northern Iowa to the mid 20s over Kentucky.
