Clouds overhead on Wednesday kept us with overcast conditions, while temperatures were well below average for this date only topping out in the teens.
A strong storm system rolling eastward across the southern US is spreading snow into southern Illinois and Indiana. Winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings were in effect for the day and will continue at least through the evening hours as well on Wednesday. Snowfall totals of between two and six inches is expected.
--STORM TEAM FORECAST--
We'll pick up a reinforcing shot of cold air tonight into tomorrow which will take our overnight lows to the low singles by Thursday morning and to below zero Friday morning. The Arctic air mass and its high pressure will keep us with sunshine and clear skies through Friday. As the ridge of high pressure moves to the east, we'll be on the receiving end of a flow of milder air from the southwest beginning on Friday and into the weekend.
So far the weekend looks to be mild with partly cloudy skies and highs in the low 40s, and lows around 20-degrees. Another bright spot in the forecast is projected highs of above 50-degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday! Keep your fingers crossed!
