Weather Summary For Central And Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
446 AM CDT Sat Apr 14 2018

Widespread showers and thunderstorms pushed through the region
overnight as southerly winds ushered warm moist air into the
Midwest. Temperatures early this morning were mild, with most
locations in the 50s.

A strong low pressure system over the central United States, will
slowly track east into the eastern Great Lakes by Sunday night.
This will bring the opportunity for strong to severe thunderstorms
across the Midwest this afternoon and evening. The main threats
from any strong or severe storms will be gusty winds and hail. To
the north of the low pressure track, heavy snow is expected from
Minnesota east into Michigan. After the cold front sweeps across
the region, much colder air will filter in from the northwest, on
Sunday.

Highs today will range from the upper 30s in northern Illinois,
to the lower 70s in east central Illinois. Low temperatures
Saturday night will be colder, with northeastern Iowa and
southern Wisconsin falling into the upper 20s, while increasing
to the mid and upper 40s in southwest Indiana.
