NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
822 PM CST FRI NOV 28 2014
A few high clouds continued to stream over portions of central and
southeast Illinois this evening, with skies being mostly clear
across the area. Winds were out of the southeast at 5 to 15 mph,
with a gust of 24 mph being reported in Peoria. Temperatures were in
the mid to upper 40s throughout the area.
Warmer weather will continue to overspread most of the Midwest into
Saturday, aided by strong southerly wind flow. The warm weather will
be brief as a cold front approaches the region Saturday night into
Sunday. This front should cross much of the Midwest on Sunday,
bringing falling temperatures during the afternoon behind the front
and scattered areas of light rain ahead of the front from Indiana to
southern Illinois. Colder air outrunning the precipitation could
result in light snow or freezing rain along I-70 in south central
Illinois and Indiana Sunday night into Monday morning.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the teens in northern
Wisconsin to the mid 40s in central and southwest Missouri.
High temperatures on Saturday will be in the 50s and 60s
throughout much of the Midwest, although 30s and 40s will be more
common over northern Iowa and near the Great Lakes.
