WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
930 AM CST FRI DEC 12 2014
Cloudy skies and cool temperatures prevailed over central and
southeast Illinois this morning. Overnight low temperatures were
in the lower 20s.
A warmer weather pattern will take hold across the Midwest for the
upcoming weekend, leading to well above normal high temperatures in
the 40s and 50s. As the warmer air arrives, areas of drizzle and fog
will develop across Wisconsin, Iowa, and northern Missouri Saturday
night into Sunday. Meanwhile, low pressure will develop over the
Texas panhandle, then begin tracking northeastward toward the Great
Lakes early next week. Rain will spread across Missouri in advance
of this system Sunday night, then across the remainder of the region
on Monday. As the low pressure departs, enough cold air will arrive
on its back side to result in a period of snow across Wisconsin,
Iowa, and northwest Illinois on Tuesday.
High temperatures today will range from the mid 30s in southern
Wisconsin, to the lower 50s in southern Missouri. Lows tonight
will drop into the lower 30s to lower 40s for much of the Midwest.
