After a mostly sunny start to the day, skies became overcast across
central and southeast Illinois during the afternoon.  High
temperatures were mainly in the 40s, but reached the lower to
middle 50s along and south of I-70.

A winter storm is brewing over the Mid Mississippi River Valley and
is expected to spread into the Midwest later tonight bringing
accumulating snowfall to the northern half of Illinois into
tomorrow morning.  Along and north of Interstate 80 will likely see
the highest amounts of snow accumulations, with warmer air mixing
into the storm and keeping a rain snow mix over Central Illinois.
Later tonight, the precipitation will change over to all snow north
of a line from roughly Rushville to Champaign. Total accumulations
are expected to range from trace amounts near the I-72 corridor,
gradually increasing to the north, with near 10 inches expected in
far northern Illinois. Behind this weather system, cold air will move
in for the remainder of the weekend. Breezy conditions mixed with the
cold air will make for a bitter morning on Sunday with wind chills
dropping into the negative single digits across northern Illinois,
and low teens in the south.

Lows tonight will range from the mid 20s in northern Iowa, to near 40
degrees along the Ohio Valley.  Tomorrows highs will range from near
30 on the Illinois Wisconsin border, to the mid 50s in western
