SYNOPSIS. Issued at 203 PM CST Tue Jan 18 2022

Breezy and mild conditions will continue across central Illinois through this evening. The warmer weather will be short-lived however, as a strong cold front brings a significant cooling trend for the middle and end of the week. In fact, wind-chill values will drop to as low as 10 below to 20 below zero everywhere west of the I-57 corridor by Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

UPDATE. Issued at 820 PM CST Tue Jan 18 2022

This evening, a cold front stretches from north central WI southwest across Cedar Rapids, IA to north central MO. Temperatures remain mild ahead of the front with much of central Illinois still in the lower 40s owing to breezy south winds. By around midnight, expect the cold front to begin to push into the lower to mid Illinois River Valley allowing strong NW winds to overspread the area and resulting in temperatures falling in its wake the rest of tonight and most of tomorrow.

SHORT TERM. (This evening through Wednesday) ISSUED AT 203 PM CST Tue Jan 18 2022

A cold front currently diving southeastward through Minnesota/Nebraska will sweep through central Illinois late tonight, bringing an abrupt end to the brief warming trend. Mild temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s will persist through the evening as brisk southwesterly winds continue in advance of the front. Once the boundary passes, winds will veer to the northwest and temps will crash after midnight. Based on the timing of the front, it appears low temperatures by dawn Wednesday will range from the teens along/northwest of the Illinois River to the middle to upper 30s south of I-70. Highs on Wednesday will be achieved in the morning, followed by falling temps throughout the day . as readings settle into the teens/lower 20s everywhere along/west of I-57 by mid to late afternoon. In addition, strong NW winds gusting 25 to 30mph will make it feel even colder.

LONG TERM. (Wednesday night through Tuesday) ISSUED AT 203 PM CST Tue Jan 18 2022

NW winds will remain strong/gusty into Wednesday night as CAA continues in earnest. With overnight lows dropping into the single digits across much of the KILX CWA, corresponding wind-chill values will plunge to as low as 10 below to 20 below zero west of the I-57 corridor. As a result, a Wind Chill Advisory will likely be needed across the W/NW CWA with future forecast packages. The bitterly cold weather will persist into Thursday: however, as high pressure builds eastward out of the Plains, winds will diminish and wind-chill values will ease. High temperatures on Thursday will be in the teens and lower 20s, with overnight lows ranging from the single digits below zero west of the Illinois River to the lower teens near the Indiana border.

Once high pressure passes to the east, temperatures will begin to moderate by the end of the week . with readings climbing back into the upper 20s and lower 30s by Saturday. The weather pattern for the upcoming weekend through next week will be dominated by deep-layer northwesterly flow. This will ensure the continuation of below normal temperatures. Numerous weak short-waves will race through the Midwest/Great Lakes through the period: however, the exact track and timing of these features is difficult to forecast at this time range. 12z Jan 18 model consensus suggests the first wave will pass to the north of central Illinois on Saturday: however, model agreement is much poorer for subsequent waves early next week. At this time, will maintain a cold/dry forecast through the extended, but would not be surprised to see periodic light snow chances introduced as individual clipper systems impact central Illinois.

AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night) Issued at 1118 PM CST Tue Jan 18 2022

A cold front is approaching the Illinois River Valley this hour and will sweep across central Illinois overnight. Breezy S/SW winds will veer to the NW behind the front and increase, especially during the afternoon Wednesday when gusts to around 30 kt are possible at times. Meanwhile, a brief window of MVFR is expected behind the front, then more widespread MVFR ceilings are expected Wednesday night.

ILX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NONE.
