WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
330 PM CDT FRI MAR 20 2015
Clouds were stubborn to leave central and southeast Illinois today,
although some clearing was taking place northwest of the Illinois
River by mid afternoon. This kept temperatures confined to the 40s
in most areas through the afternoon.
Lingering cloudiness east of the Mississippi River will erode
tonight, leaving mostly clear skies over much of the Midwest. A cold
front will sink southward late tonight, and will reach the Ohio
Valley by midday Saturday. Aside from a few showers over Wisconsin,
this front will largely pass through dry. A large part of the
Midwest will be rather mild on Saturday, but cooler air will
overspread the region on Sunday.
Regional low temperatures tonight will range from the 20s across
the northwest half of Wisconsin, to the lower 40s over much of
Missouri. Highs on Saturday behind the front, from Iowa to northern
Indiana and northward, will mainly be in the 40s and lower 50s.
However, mid 60s to lower 70s will be widespread across Missouri,
eastward into the Ohio Valley.
