WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
432 AM CST SAT DEC 13 2014
Cloudy skies and warmer temperatures prevailed over central and
southeast Illinois this morning. Pre-dawn readings were in the
middle to upper 30s.
A storm system tracking through the western U.S. today, will be the
main weather maker across the Midwest through early next week.
Southerly flow ahead of the system will bring much warmer conditions
into the region over the weekend, along with clouds, drizzle, and
fog. As low pressure gradually approaches from the southwest, rain
will develop across Missouri Sunday night, then will spread across
the remainder of the region on Monday. After that, colder air
arriving on the back side of the departing system will change the
rain to a period of light snow across Iowa, Wisconsin, and northern
Illinois, late Monday night into Tuesday.
High temperatures today will range from the lower 40s in northern
Indiana, to near 60 degrees in central Missouri. Lows tonight will
dip into the upper 30s to upper 40s for much of the Midwest.
