Even though clouds were thinning out over northwest Illinois, we here in east central Illinois and west central Indiana were still under the clouds.  Overcast conditions continued as temperatures only topped out in the upper 20s.  There were some very light snow flurries observed at some locations from time to time.


On Thursday a disturbance to our south will bring in additional cloudiness with some locations to our far southwest picking up some snow flurries and/or snow showers. This would include an area from Springfield to the south picking up less than an inch of snow from late Wednesday into early Thursday morning. By Friday, high pressure may help to clear out skies enough to see some late afternoon sun through the clouds.

An end of the week weather system will move mostly to our south getting only close enough to spread some clouds into our area early Friday.  By the weekend, we'll be back with a cloud/sun mix while temperatures rise to near average for this time year.  Average lows are in the low 20s, while average high temps end up being in the mid to upper 30s.

Another weather system will move across the region early next week to bring rain chances for late Monday into Tuesday.  Temperatures will be high enough to keep it all rain, at least through Tuesday.  By Wednesday, we could see that rain change to snow, but so far any snow is expected to be a light accumulation.  That's still a few days away, so stay tuned for the latest STORM TEAM forecasts this week.

--6-10 DAY OUTLOOK--

December 23-27: Temperatures will likely remain above average during the period, while precipitation totals look to be above average as well.
