Almanac

THURSDAY, MARCH 5, 2015

NORMAL HIGH:
47
NORMAL LOW: 29

RECORD HIGH: 76 (1956)
RECORD LOW:
-12 (1960)

SUNRISE:

SUNSET:

Bitterly cold temperatures are set to give way to a nice warm that will extend well into the upcoming week!

Skies are clearing across central Illinois into early Thursday as high pressure builds into the nation's mid-section, but it's an arctic high and temperatures will remain cold  with wind chills approaching -10 both Thursday and Friday morning.

After arctic high slides eastward, winds shift to the southwest on Friday, and that begins a big time warm up through the weekend. Friday looks to be still cool with highs in the 30s, but the weekend is looking spectacular with highs finally reaching seasonable temperatures in the 40's and 50's. The trend continues through next week, too with afternoon highs pushing 60 degrees for the first time in 2015.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the upper teens Thursday; mid to upper 30s Friday; mid to upper 40s Saturday; near 50 Sunday; lower 50s Monday; mid to upper 50s Tuesday; and, near 60 Wednesday. Overnight lows will fall to the single digits Thursday night; mid to upper 20s Friday and Saturday night; and, lower 30s Sunday and Monday night; and mid 30s Tuesday night.
