Main area of rainfall is exiting & now cold front is approaching from central Illinois.

It shows up well in that area of some clearing with some enhancement to the cloud tops.

A narrow, low-topped line of showers is possible along the actual cold front as it passes later today.

Temperatures should peak in the 50s to near 60 ahead of the front with patchy drizzle & a few showers ahead of this front.

Gusts have already been measured at 30-40 area-wide with some gusts in Benton & Newton counties exceeding 40 mph (47 mph Kentland Municipal Airport.....41 mph Fowler; Round Grove).

The highest gusts are now in eastern Illinois & will move eastward over the next few hours.  So, gusts 35-45 mph will occur at times.  A few gusts may reach 45-50 mph.......all from the southwest.

It will still be windy behind the cold front, but not quite as windy with west to northwest, rather than southwest winds.

Friday looks mostly cloudy with some areas turning partly cloudy later in the day with highs in the 42-46 range with north-northeast wind at 10-20 mph decreasing to 7-11 mph late.

A wave of some snow & rain/snow showers is possible Saturday, mainly in the morning to midday.

If there would be any accumulation it would tend to be rather localized, minor & brief & confined more to grassy & elevated surfaces it appears.

Highs will run 36-41 after morning lows of 30-33 with mostly cloudy to cloudy skies & northeast wind turning to the northwest at 10-15 mph.

Sunday look decent with partly cloudy skies & highs 45-50, followed by 51-56 Monday as wind turns to the southeast, then south & increases.

Widespread rainfall & 50s are likely Tuesday-Tuesday night with strong winds.

Wednesday should feature 40s & lots of clouds with some clearing late.

Thanksgiving looks ok with skies becoming mostly cloudy after sunshine early with highs in the 40s with lows in the 20s in the morning.

Trend is for mild, windy & wet, then cold & risk of a couple of winter storms in December.

Sure looks like potent cold weather will arrive though the real near record "Polar Vortex" event may be more like early January to mid-January.  We will see though.

Just count on bitter cold ahead & potential of multiple winter storms latter December to mid-January with risk of near/record cold at one or two points (temperatures well below zero).
