Another cold day Sunday before warmer weather returns for the start of Spring
Wind chills in the single digits Sunday morning
PEORIA (25News Now) - After waking up to some minor snow and bitterly cold temperatures Saturday morning, Sunday will trend drier and a touch warmer. Be mindful of remaining slick spots from any lingering snow showers/possible snow melt as that will freeze over - if it hasn’t already with today’s below freezing temperatures.
Light snow showers from an upper-level system will come to an end this evening and skies will begin to clear overnight. Lows will fall into the teens, so wind chills will be in the single digits Sunday morning. Highs will still be nearly 10 to 15 degrees below average Sunday in the mid to upper 30s. Winds will not be as strong as recent days, but there will still be a wind chill so afternoon temperatures will feel more like the mid 20s. The good news is that it’ll be mostly sunny Sunday and the first day of spring on Monday comes with warmer weather.
After winter’s strong grip this weekend, we will enter the spring season with near average high temperatures in the low 50s. It’ll still be a cold start Monday with morning temperatures in the mid 20s. Winds will also turn breezy Monday, but from the southwest, as this will bring in warmer air to the region.
50s and 60s will be common for the rest of next week, however the warmer weather will come with chances for showers and storms. We’ll likely see a first chance of rain Tuesday evening into Wednesday. A chance of thunderstorms will be possible Thursday when a stronger system arrives to Illinois. We’ll have to watch this system for a potential severe weather threat. Depending on how slow or fast this system moves, we could linger rain and potentially some snow chances Friday and early Saturday morning.
