What an afternoon & evening it has been in central Illinois!  At least 15 reports of tornadoes, hail up to golfball size & a measured wind gust of 75 mph at the Springfield Airport!

Some of these areas received 8" of snow last weekend & dropped to the single digits this week!

Key to this today was sun.  Sun warmed these areas to 60-65 in a strongly shear, dynamics environment with cold air aloft. 

That...........after this lastnight-early this morning:

The Tornado Watch as been eroding away as the storms march eastward. As of the moment there is still a Tornado Warning for cell just east of Bloomington, Illinois.

Here, we just could shake the low clouds, except for a few breaks & most of those were brief & in the southwestern half of the area. 

It is warming up over the area.  Temperatures as of 8:22 p.m. are 46-58 (northeast to southwest) over the area right now, with 55-57 over Greater Lafayette.

One band of showers & a few t'storms is moving northeast away from the area, but arc of showers & t'storms that has produced all of the severe weather is approaching.

It is weakening due to lack of heating, but there is still a lot of shear present & forcing.  So, a few showers & t'storms will race through within the next several hours.  An  isolated severe t'storm cannot be ruled out. 

Temperatures should max out at 54-60 over the area.

Overnight, any rain with exit with breezy to windy conditions & 40s, followed by 50s with some dry weather, then afternoon showers/t'showers tomorrow.  Temperatures will begin to fall into the 40s.  It will be a breezy to windy day.

We get in on some snow Sunday night to Monday, Monday night to even Tuesday.  Minor accumulations are possible with 1" or less at times with 1-2" amounts possible in the north.  The most widespread, most steady snow looks to be Monday morning.  It looks more like snow showers & squalls beyond that.  However periods of some slick travel are possible Sunday night to Tuesday.

Additional snow possible late next week & next weekend.  Looks like a good pattern for a winter storm, but details this far out are sparse.  Good set-up though.
