(OLNEY/NEWTON) As the cold front moved through last evening bringing colder air in with it through the overnight hours, we’ll return to some sunshine today with a weak high pressure ridge affecting our downstate weather. The northwest wind will eventually ease up tonight and a clear sky and more sunshine on tap for tomorrow. However, that all changes after a dry Friday and increasing clouds, an approaching storm system could bring us our first real chance of some significant snowfall amounts, although some weather models show the bulk of the storm passing well south of Illinois, through the Ohio River Valley. The snow threat begins Friday night, continuing through Saturday night, with periods of rain mixed in during the day. A high pressure ridge will regain control of our weather on Sunday with cold conditions, but then dry and a tad warmer the first of next week. Stay tuned for continued weather updates and monitor a NOAA Weather Alert Radio for more weather information and/or details.
