WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
256 PM CST WED FEB 25 2015
Cloud cover increased across central Illinois this afternoon, and
snow moved into the northwest part of the state, as a storm system
approached. Mid afternoon temperatures ranged from 24 degrees in
Galesburg, to the mid 30s in southeast Illinois.
An Alberta clipper low pressure system located in southern Iowa this
afternoon, will track southeast, towards the Ohio Valley by
Thursday morning. To the northeast of the low pressure track,
accumulating snow will fall from Iowa, southeast through central
Illinois, overnight. Several inches of accumulation are expected,
especially northwest of a Jacksonville to Bloomington line. The
system will weaken as it shifts southeast, so amounts will quickly
taper off to around a half inch near the I-70 corridor. Behind
this weather system, another round of Arctic air will move in, for
Thursday and Friday.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the single digits below
zero in northern Iowa, to the mid 20s in southeast Missouri. Highs
on Thursday will range from the single digits in central Iowa, to
the lower 30s along the Ohio Valley.
