WEATHER…..or not…. I’m not coming……


… SHARPLY COLDER WEATHER ON SATURDAY WITH SOME SNOW…

A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH CENTRAL ILLINOIS TONIGHT BRINGING AN END TO THE MILD TEMPERATURES OF THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS. HIGHS THIS AFTERNOON HAVE SOARED INTO THE MID 60S BUT THAT WILL BE REPLACED BY 35 TO 40 DEGREE TEMPERATURES ON SATURDAY. ALONG WITH THE MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES MOVING IN OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS… A WEATHER DISTURBANCE WILL BRING SOME SNOW TO AREAS ALONG AND WEST OF THE ILLINOIS RIVER… WHERE 1 TO 2 INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE DURING THE DAY. LESS THAN AN INCH IS EXPECTED EAST OF THE ILLINOIS RIVER. SNOWFALL TOTALS WILL BE A BIT HEAVIER OVER PARTS OF EASTERN IOWA… NORTHEAST MISSOURI AND EXTREME WESTERN ILLINOIS WHERE UP TO 4 INCHES OF WET SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE IN A FEW LOCATIONS.

SEVERAL FACTORS SHOULD KEEP SNOWFALL TOTALS DOWN ACROSS OUR AREA ON SATURDAY. THE FIRST BEING AIR TEMPERATURES WILL BE ABOVE FREEZING DURING THE DAY AND SECONDLY… THE TWO INCH SOIL TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE UPPER 30S TO LOWER 40S IN THE AREAS THAT ARE EXPECTING THE ACCUMULATING SNOWS. AREA ROADWAYS SHOULD REMAIN MOSTLY WET WITH ONLY SECONDARY ROADS AND SOME BRIDGE DECKS BEING AFFECTED BY THE WET SNOW. A NORTHEAST WIND GUSTING AS HIGH AS 35 MILES PER HOUR AT TIMES WILL MAKE IT FEEL EVEN COLDER OUTSIDE ON SATURDAY. QUITE A CONTRAST TO THE WEATHER WE HAD THIS AFTERNOON.

 Here is our weather warning posted for Illinois, for Saturday. Will  someone please find that ground hog!

    1. OH……that sound perfect. We really should enjoy the little cold snap, cause I think chili always tastes better in the winter. So, it’s a sign spring is coming. Then we will be B****^^^ about the heat. Never happy are we?

  1. Yikes – the sun is shining here – Golden Destroyer and I have already been out in backyard playing ball and hopefully Devoted Spouse is out tackling nailing fence gate back together after heavy wind pulled some boards from the bottom of the gate and also he better do some weeding coz I’m doing the laundry and I’m one tired old broad already – ROFL.

    1. Well…..Crone all I can say is, it may be heading your way. It’s a get a book, make soup and build a fire kind of day…….That’s my plan!
