Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Lincoln IL 525 AM CST Sun Mar 7 2021
SYNOPSIS. Issued at 325 AM CST Sun Mar 7 2021
Dry weather with mild temperatures is expected through Tuesday. South to southwest winds will become increasingly breezy. High temperatures will range from the upper 50s to lower 60s today, increasing to mid 60s for Monday and Tuesday. The next chance for precipitation arrives on Wednesday with chances lingering through the end of the week. Heavy rainfall is possible across central Illinois.
SHORT TERM. (Today and tonight) ISSUED AT 325 AM CST Sun Mar 7 2021
The elongated surface high pressure ridge that has been positioned north to south across central IL will move somewhat east today allowing a warm front to the southwest to move into central IL today and off to the northeast tonight, associated with a low pressure system currently in the northern Plains into Canada. This should bring more cloudiness today compared with the past few days, and allow a strong warming trend to start working into central IL from the southwest. Highs today should range from lower 60s from Bloomington to Effingham westward to upper 50s to the northeast, and lows tonight should remain above the freezing mark across the area for one of the first few times this year.
LONG TERM. (Monday through Saturday) ISSUED AT 325 AM CST Sun Mar 7 2021
Dry, warm, and breezy weather will characterize the first few days of the upcoming work week as a warm front lifts northeast of the area leaving central IL in warm southwesterly flow in high pressure. Expect highs rising well into the 60s Monday and Tuesday, with perhaps the Jacksonville area approaching 70 degrees by Tuesday.
By Wednesday, a large scale trough over the western US and southwesterly flow over the Plains into the upper Midwest will create a frontal zone with a series of disturbances queued to propagate along the front. Well above normal temperatures will continue with the front located to the northwest. Significant uncertainty still remains in timing and details of any of these disturbances, however moist return flow ahead of the frontal zone and the likely eventual movement of the front eastward will bring increasing chances for precipitation into central IL, which could be heavy at times, and the potential for periods of thunderstorms. It appears there is good potential for the frontal zone to stall out for a day or so somewhere in the region, which could mean excessive rainfall in a favored track, although exact position of the heaviest rainfall axis is far from certain at this point, and could vary by distance scales of a state or so. Therefore, current forecast package indicates chance category PoPs moving in Wednesday, likely category on Thursday, and lowering back to chance on Friday. Temperatures will likely return closer to normal by Friday or Saturday after the frontal passage. After Friday, the outlook becomes less certain as it appears a cut-off low over the Southwest US will begin an uncertain track eastward, influenced by an increasingly indeterminant large scale pattern.
