WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
639 PM CDT WED APR 9 2014
Sunny skies and mild temperatures prevailed over central and
southeast Illinois on Wednesday. High temperatures were
seasonable, in the lower to middle 60s.
As high pressure shifts toward the East Coast, gusty southwesterly
winds will transport even warmer air into the Midwest on Thursday.
Meanwhile, a cold front dropping southward out of the Great Lakes
will trigger a few showers across Wisconsin and the central and
northern sections of Illinois and Indiana. The front will sag
southward and become stationary across the Ohio River Valley
Thursday night. As a result, rain chances will persist along and
south of I-70 into Friday, while the remainder of the region
experiences warm and dry conditions.
Low temperatures tonight will drop into the lower 40s to lower 50s
across the Midwest. Highs on Thursday will range from the lower 60s
in northern Illinois, to the middle 70s in southern Illinois.
