Mild temperatures and quiet weather will be the rule the next few days across central Illinois.

After a quick burst of snow dusted Springfield with three-tenths of an inch of snow early Monday afternoon, quiet weather with near seasonable temperatures returns Tuesday. However, more clouds than sunshine are expected much of the day Tuesday, due to an inversion of warmer air aloft leading to mainly cloudy skies.

Gusty south winds and abundant sunshine combine for an exceptionally warm Wednesday with afternoon highs peaking out near 50 degrees. Temperatures remain mild through the start of the weekend, but turn colder by Sunday with highs only in the 20's early next week.

Precipitation chances are limited over the next seven days. There's a slight chance for scattered rain and snow showers early Thursday, but that disturbance should pass through dry. Sunday offers a slightly better chance for some snow and we'll continue to monitor the latest forecast models as they track the late weekend winter weather maker.

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