[February 01, 2013]  Below is the Friday weather graphic from the Lincoln office of the National Weather Service:

Bitterly cold temperatures in the single digits will start the day Friday, combined with gusty winds and wind chills of 15 to 20 below that will continue until about 10 a.m. Then temperatures will slowly warm Friday afternoon, only reaching into the 15- to 22-degree range.

Clouds will also be on the increase and bring light snow to the area for Friday night through Saturday morning. By morning, snowfall amounts will be 1-2 inches across a good portion of central and eastern Illinois. Higher amounts of 2-plus inches will be along and north of a line from Galesburg to Paris, roughly Interstate 74.

Temperatures will warm Friday night through Saturday, reaching into the 30- to 35-degree range. Several other clipper systems will move across the area from this weekend into the middle of next week. Snowfall amounts will be light with each system. In addition, temperatures should warm, with highs ranging from the middle 30s to lower 40s.
