Almanac


--THURSDAY'S WEATHER--

Another unseasonably cold day is on tap as the relentless arctic air mass positioned over the country goes nowhere. Despite a fair amount of sunshine today temperatures only reach to near 30-degrees this afternoon, nearly 20-degrees below normal.

--STORM TEAM FORECAST--


So far this week, we haven't even come close to average temperature readings and we won't until this weekend. By late Friday southerly winds begin to set up in advance of a developing system to the southwest. Although the weekend looks wet, the area gets a needed break from the cold as temperatures reach the 40s & 50s.

Southerly winds from an upper level disturbance moving northward from the southern Plains will not only bring warmer air this weekend, but also ample moisture setting the stage for a brief period of freezing rain/freezing drizzle Friday night. By Saturday temperatures warm to above the freezing point turning the precipitation to all rain. As the storm system pushes east across Illinois and Indiana we'll see widespread steady rain with a chance of thunderstorms along with mild temperatures, in the 50s. Rainfall totals this weekend will range from 0.50 to 1.50 inches, mostly coming during the Saturday night through Sunday evening time frame.

Expect windy and colder weather to return Monday as unseasonably cold air returns behind the departing storms system. Although temps drop to below normal once again, at this time it does not look nearly as cold as what we have seen this week.
