FLOOD WARNING until 9:00 am for southeastern Champaign county and 1pm Thursday for Vermilion County. If you encounter standing water on the road or in low-lying flood prone areas, please remember to "Turn Around, Don't Drown".

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for much of central Illinois through Thursday morning.

TEMPERATURES MODERATING WITH MORE RAIN CHANCES

SPRINGFIELD (WICS) - Another round of winter is gearing up for central Illinois -- just in time for the Thursday morning commute. Moisture streaming up from the south will combine with a weather disturbance lifting across our region to help generate some light freezing rain, sleet, and snow through Thursday morning. Ice accumulations will not be as significant as Wednesday morning, but still enough to cause some slippery roads -- especially bridges and overpasses.

The rest of the week stays active with a quick moving disturbance drifting across Illinois with a few scattered showers with rain totals of a tenth or two late Thursday night and early Friday morning. Otherwise, the rest of the work week features more clouds than sun with highs temperatures back to the 40s on Thursday and around 50 on Friday.

The weekend starts off with more rain chances developing late Friday night and continuing on-and-off through late Saturday night. This next weather maker could also pack some generous rainfall of an inch or two that could serve to aggravate flooding concerns over parts of mid-Illinois.

We'll have a chance to dry out beginning Sunday with a stretch of sunny skies and mild temperatures extending into early next week.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the low to mid 40s Thursday; near 50 Friday through Sunday; and, mid to upper 50s Monday through Wednesday. Overnight lows will fall to the low 40s Thursday night; mid 30s Friday night; low 30s Saturday through Monday night; and, low 40s Tuesday night.

So far this weekend looks to be a continuation of active weather with rain showers on Saturday with highs around 55. On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday expect mostly sunny with lows in the 30s and a high in the upper 40s on Sunday and the low 50s on Monday and Tuesday.
