Temperatures were about 25 degrees below normal across central and
southeast Illinois today. As rain overspread the area, temperatures
by mid afternoon were generally in the mid 40s to around 50
degrees, although locations around Lawrenceville reached the mid 50s
due to the later arrival of the rain. Some sleet was even mixed in
at times, from about Canton to Bloomington northward.
Lingering rain across Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky will diminish
this evening, as an area of high pressure build across the Midwest.
This will provide fair weather for a couple days. A warming trend
will begin on Thursday, but will be more established by Friday as
temperatures return to normal.
Regional low temperatures tonight will mainly be in the 40s. Highs
on Thursday will range from around 60 degrees in southeast Illinois,
to the lower 70s across northern Iowa, and southern Wisconsin.
