Mostly cloudy to partly sunny skies were present across central and
southeast Illinois throughout the day with breezy northerly winds.
Temperatures at 3 pm ranged from 15 degrees in Galesburg to 27
degrees in Lawrenceville.
A cold and relatively quiet forecast is on tap for much of the
Midwest through the beginning of the work week. Canadian high
pressure will settle into the Midwest by Monday morning, bringing
bitterly cold temperatures with lows below zero and wind chills
plunging into the 20 to 30 below zero range across much of Iowa,
Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana. A brief warm-up is expected Tuesday
as the high pressure slides east and southwesterly flow sets up
across the area. However, another surge of Arctic air is expected
toward the middle and latter part of the week.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the negative teens in
northern Iowa to the low teens in southeast Missouri into Kentucky.
For tomorrow, expect mostly sunny skies and temperatures ranging
from the single digits in southern Wisconsin to the lower 20s in
south central Missouri.
