November 10th, 2012 at 8:21 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

It was a warm, windy November day with highs of 69-73 across the viewing area.  South to south-southwest winds also gusted as high as 31 mph.

The warmth was far-reaching all in the Plains & Midwest:  The daily record high was broken at St. Louis with a high of 81.  Des Moines broke a record with 78, Ottumwa, Iowa reached 77, setting a new record & Minneapolis, Minnesota reached 69.  The November 11 record of 75, set in 1999, was tied at Springfield, Illinois with 75 today.  Moline, Illinois hit 71, tying the old record of 71 set in 1949……..& on & on the list goes.

Sunday still looks dry & windy with south to southwest gusts as high as 37 mph.  Clouds will be on the increase, especially later in the day with highs of 65-71.

Severe threat tomorrow night may get as close as far western Illinois, but I am not concerned with our area getting severe storms.

T’Storms are likely for a while Sunday night, followed by a cold rain with rapidly falling temperatures early Monday morning.  The rain may end by midday Monday, but temperatures will be chilly!  Temperatures will be around 40 in the afternoon.
