Temps Slowly Warm Up

Arctic air returns to Canada as temperatures slowly warm over the next few days.
We finally saw numbers move into positive territory today, and for some, even to double digits.  This ended the streak of 38 consecutive hours of temperatures below zero, which began early Sunday evening.

                        Arctic Air Stats

Wind chills will again be very cold, but not as frigid as the last few mornings.  Area wide we should see wind chills dip to anywhere from -5 to -15 during the overnight hours.


                Futurecast Wind Chills Wed 6am



Still well below average temperatures expected for Wednesday, but much improved since Monday.


                   Wednesday Planner


Warmer temperatures are on the way as the arctic air mass retreats to the north, and will slowly work into the Midwest over the next several days.


                10pm Temperatures Tuesday


A stationary boundary setting up across the state will allow for a couple of weak systems to move through quickly on Wednesday and Thursday.  While snow looks probable, amounts of snow look very low.  Both Wednesday and Thursday should see accumulations of less than 1" total across all of central Illinois.  By Friday a warm front will push north of the state, allowing for temperatures to rise above the freezing mark.  Rain will swing into the area by Friday night.  Some indications of up to 0.50" are possible.  Combined precipitation with snow melt could cause some flooding issues for some, which will need to be watched closely over the next few days.


                Futurecast Wednesday 7am


                   Futurecast Thursday 10am


                Futurecast Friday 12am


                Futurecast Friday 12pm


                Futurecast Friday 6pm


Warm up will continue for the rest of the week, and as of right now we should stay dry this weekend with temperatures near 40º, nearly a 55º swing in highs from Monday afternoon.
