Arctic Air Invades Next Week


CENTRAL ILLINOIS - After a warm fall here in the Midwest changes are on the way! A system will develop across the plains next Tuesday and push east. This system will start to impact central Illinois a week from Wednesday into Thursday morning, December 8th. It's too early to talk specifics about precipitation type, but difference on the track of the low and timing will have an impact on precipitation type. 


What models do agree on is a big punch of Arctic air invading the middle part of the nation Thursday and Friday, December 8th/9th. Cold air looks to dig all the way into central Texas.
