WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
958 PM CST TUE DEC 1 2015
A low pressure system in northeast Iowa was responsible for a band of
clouds and precipitation rotating into Illinois this evening. The
precipitation was starting to cross the Illinois River at late
evening. While most of the precipitation was liquid, snow was mixing
in with the rain in northern Knox County. Temperatures across the
area at late evening were in the middle 30s to lower 40s.
As the strong area of low pressure aloft moves through the Midwest,
periodic rain and snow showers will affect the region overnight and
Wednesday. Most snowfall accumulations will be minor, but totals
around an inch or so will be possible over northeast Illinois and
northern Indiana. Any lingering precipitation will exit the region
Wednesday evening, and high pressure will build in from the west,
resulting in dry conditions for the end of the week.
Regional low temperatures overnight will range from the mid 20s to
lower 30s, coolest over Wisconsin and northern Iowa. Highs on
Wednesday will range from the mid 30s over Wisconsin and northern
Iowa, to the upper 40s in southern Missouri and western Kentucky.
