NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
635 PM CDT SAT MAR 15 2014
Mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures prevailed over central and
southeast Illinois on Saturday. A stationary front stretching
across the central part of the state, separated temperatures in the
30s and 40s over the northern half of the state, from the 50s and
60s farther south.
Two weather systems will impact the Midwest over the next 24
hours, bringing wintry conditions back into the picture. The first
will spread light snow across Iowa and northern Illinois tonight.
A minor snow accumulation of 1 inch or less will be likely along and
north of a Kansas City to Peoria line. The second system will impact
the southern part of the region on Sunday, resulting in a rain and
snow mix from the central and southern sections of Missouri eastward
into the Ohio River Valley. A slushy snow accumulation of 1 to 3
inches will be likely south of I-70, with as much as 3 to 4 inches
possible across southeast Missouri south of the Saint Louis area.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the teens in northeast
Illinois, to the upper 30s in southern Missouri. Highs on Sunday
will be well below normal, in the 20s and 30s for much of the
