NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
448 AM CDT MON APR 14 2014
A strong cold front pushed across Illinois overnight, accompanied by
blustery northwest winds and falling temperatures. Pre-dawn readings
ranged from the lower 40s in the western part of the state, to near
60 degrees along the Indiana border.
Strong low pressure will lift northeast through the Great Lakes
today, bringing accumulating snow to Wisconsin and northern Michigan.
Farther south, brisk northwest winds will bring much colder air into
the Midwest. An upper level disturbance tracking across Illinois and
Indiana, could bring periods of light snow to parts of the area, into
early this evening. Little to no accumulation is expected. For
tonight, high pressure will begin to move in from the west. This
will bring clearing skies and cold temperatures, with sub-freezing
conditions by Tuesday morning. Quiet but cold weather is then
expected through Tuesday night, as the high pressure ridge moves
across the region.
High temperatures today will range from the mid 30s in northern
Iowa, to the mid 60s in southern Indiana. Lows tonight will drop
into the lower 20s to lower 30s for much of the Midwest.
