(1:42 p.m. Friday announcement)

[April 07, 2007]  A large high-pressure system of Canadian origin will continue to be entrenched across the Midwest through this weekend. Low temperatures will dip several degrees below the freezing mark, which is 10 to 15 degrees below normal levels. The recent unseasonably warm weather has caused vegetation to begin blooming, so any freezing weather will endanger tender plants.

The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning in effect from 9 p.m. Saturday to 9 a.m. Sunday for the counties of Knox, Stark, Peoria, Marshall, Woodford, Fulton, Tazewell, McLean, Schuyler, Mason, Logan, DeWitt, Piatt, Champaign, Vermilion, Cass, Menard, Scott, Morgan, Sangamon, Christian, Macon, Moultrie, Douglas, Coles, Edgar, Shelby, Cumberland, Clark, Effingham, Jasper, Crawford, Clay, Richland and Lawrence, including the cities of Galesburg, Peoria, Bloomington, Normal, Havana, Lincoln, Champaign, Urbana, Danville, Jacksonville, Springfield, Taylorville, Decatur, Charleston, Mattoon, Shelbyville, Effingham, Flora and Lawrenceville.

A freeze warning means subfreezing temps are imminent or highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
