narrow high pressure ridge extending from central ontario canada
thru il into east texas provided a fair amount of sunshine and
light winds to central and southeast il today. Meanwhile a 564 dm
500 mb low was over central al and tracking toward the eastern
ga fl border by sunrise sat, keeping its weather wx well SE of il.
Temps at mid afternoon were in the low to mid 40s, with upper 40s
in west central il. Cirrus clouds were spreading SE across the il
river valley and toward i-55 at mid afternoon. Stratus clouds were
in NE il and northern in from dwight to kankakee ne. As light
winds turn east NE behind a weak front tonight, some low clouds
will track into eastcentral il overnight and into parts of central
il late tonight into Saturday morning. Lows overnight in the low
to mid 20s, so not quite as cold as the teens we had over most
areas last night. Partly to mostly cloudy skies Saturday with more
clouds over NE cwa. A bit cooler highs Saturday in the upper
30s lower 40s with coolest readings in NE CWA where more low cloud
cover expected. Winds to stay fairly light on Saturday with
nearby high pressure ridge.

a short wave trof over the pacific states will track into the
upper midwest during Sat night, while its precipitation stays
west NW of CWA thru sunrise Sunday with dry low levels initially.
Mostly cloudy skies Sat night, with less clouds near the wabash
river and lows in the mid to upper 20s. The short wave trof to
move east into the mid upper ms river valley by 18z noon Sunday
and to likely spread light mixed precipitation eastward over the
il river valley Sunday morning and further east Sunday afternoon
as it weakens. A mixture of light snow and possibly light freezing|
rain over the il river valley during early mid Sunday morning and
changing over to light rain late Sunday morning midday Sunday
over area. Highs Sunday of 40-45f, coolest from i-74 ne. The upper
level trof could linger small chances of light rain snow showers
Sunday night especially in eastern il Sunday evening. Lows Sunday
night in the upper 20s to around 30f.
Il will be a seasonably cool NW upper level flow Mon with a weak
short wave tracking SE over mo and keeping a fair amount of low
clouds around while any pcpn chances would be quite spotty if they
occur at all with better chances SW over mo. Highs Mon in the low
to mid 40s. Skies to become partly to mostly sunny during Tue with
a bit milder highs of 45-50f as upper level heights rise. Wed
should be the mildest day in the low to mid 50s with nearby upper
level ridge over the ms river valley.
A stronger southern stream storm system moves into ca Wed and
ejects a piece of energy NE over il during Wed night and thu. This
appears to be warm enough for mainly rain showers and QPF also
heavier with this system than Sundays system with near half inch
or more possible. Rain could change to light snow Thu night before
diminishing as cooler air usher in. Highs Thu range from 45-50f
over il river valley to mid 50s SE of i-70. Cooler Thu night and
fri with highs Fri in the upper 30s and lower 40s with dry wx
expected over most of area Fri as clouds decrease as high pressure
settles into the mo and mid ms river valley next Friday.

shield of MVFR ceilings moving southwest across northeast illinois
being monitored closely. As winds lighten overnight, the advection
of this stratocu should slow. The terminals most likely to be
impacted are kcmi and kbmi. At this time, it appears the clouds
should remain MVFR.
Will also be watching for the development of MVFR vsbys out ahead
of the cloud shield late tonight. Will include a mention at kpia
and kspi with light winds and mostly clear skies.

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
