Gradually warmer temperatures return over theweekend and precipitation chances increase heading into the start of theupcoming holiday week across central Illinois.

Wesaw a little sunshine today and theres more where that came from this weekendto go along with those slightly warmer temperatures.

Temperatureswill rise a few degrees above normal this weekend with highs in the upper 30'sto lower 40's. A winter storm tracks just to the north early in the upcomingweek, but brings mainly rain chances Monday and Tuesday. A strong cold frontdrops temperatures below freezing by Tuesday night with light snow possiblethrough early Wednesday morning.

Thenext substantial chance for wintry precipitation is the day after Christmas,but even that chance is looking minimal at best. Storm Team 20 will continue tomonitor the latest forecast models for the track and impact of this system.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the upper 30s Saturday;lower 40s Sunday and Monday; upper 30's with falling afternoon temperaturesTuesday; and, mid- 30's Wednesday and Christmas Day. Overnight lows will dropto the upper 20's Friday night; lower 30's Saturday and Sunday night; upper30's Monday night; and, around 30 Tuesday night and Christmas Eve.
