PLEASE CONSIDER WHAT YOU'RE GETTING...
I hope you are aware of how far ahead of the competition TSwails has been in catching the trends of our early winter weather pattern. It takes a heck of a lot of commitment, passion, and knowledge to do that. This is now my job and that's why I'm asking for a voluntary subscription fee of $12 dollars a year, one dollar a month to keep TSwails going. Together we can create one of the best, most unique, and reliable weather sites in the Midwest. Your contribution of 3 cents a day, allows me to stay free of the corporate world and pour my energy into doing what I do best, forecasting the weather! We hope you see the value and hard work that goes into the site everyday. You support in any way is sincerely appreciated. Thanks and roll weather. To donate click on the secure green box below.
Finally, temperatures over the region have gone above the freezing mark and the thaw is on. Take a look at what's happening out west where readings will hit 60 in parts of Nebraska and Kansas.
The warm-up is stunted in parts if my area, Illinois and Wisconsin by snow that is on the ground. You can see it on the satellite and what it's doing to mid-day temperatures.
Here's another perspective of temperatures in my area. Anyplace in the 30s has snow on the ground.
The southerly winds that are tapping the warmer air are also pulling in some moisture. It's not much but it will be enough to increase clouds Saturday and perhaps bring some fog, drizzle or spotty light showers Saturday night and early Sunday. Amounts would be very light.
More important, temperatures the rest of the weekend will generally be in the range of 40 to 45, maybe a bit higher south of I-80 Saturday. Nothing to write home about but certainly a step up for where we've been the rest of the week. Roll weather and enjoy your weekend and warmer temperatures...TS
