WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
515 AM CST THU NOV 19 2015
Partly cloudy skies and breezy westerly winds prevailed over central
and southeast Illinois overnight. Pre-dawn temperatures were in
the upper 30s, to middle 40s.
Winds will gradually diminish across the region on today, as high
pressure builds in from the west. After the high pushes to the east
on Friday, a strengthening low pressure storm system will spread a
mix of rain and snow into the region, for Friday night into Saturday.
At this time, it appears several inches of snow may accumulate from
Iowa and northern Illinois, into southern Wisconsin, and the lower
Great Lakes. Further south, mainly rain is expected south of the I-72
corridor. Behind this system, unseasonably cold weather will move
into the region, for the remainder of the weekend.
High temperatures today will range from the upper 30s in northern
Iowa, to the mid 50s along the Ohio Valley. Lows tonight will drop
into the mid 20s, to lower 30s across the Midwest.
