The National Weather Service has *CANCELED* the WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for all of central Illinois.  

Morning rains are expected to change over to snow late afternoon with only minimal accumulations under an inch. Drivers should continue to use caution as snow develops. Even a thin layer of snow will be more than enough to make roads slick and slippery heading into Christmas Eve.

Christmas Day weather on Thursday offers partly to mostly sunny skies with temperatures topping out in the lower to mid- 40's.

The remainder of the holiday weekend offers generally quiet and dry weather with colder temperatures Saturday and Sunday. However, there's the potential for another round of mixed precipitation with rain and snow on Saturday.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK:
Look for highs in the mid- to upper 30's Wednesday; mid- to upper 40's Christmas Day and Friday; lower 40's Saturday; mid- 30's Sunday and Monday; and, upper 20's Tuesday. Overnight lows will fall to the lower 30's Christmas Eve; upper 30's Thursday night; lower 40's Friday night; upper 20's Saturday and Sunday night; and, mid- 20's Monday night.
