BLOOMINGTON — If you're in downtown Bloomington, that is — in fact — snow falling from the sky.
And, little wonder: the temperature at 1 p.m. Friday was a more-than-chilly 36 degrees.
Obviously, it won't stick to the ground, but it's enough for the National National Weather Service in Lincoln to issue a hazardous weather outlook for Central Illinois, including the counties of McLean, Champaign, DeWitt, Macon, Peoria, Tazewell and Woodford in The Pantagraph area.
And, while the commute home won't be a problem, the NWS says there could be patchy frost late Friday night and Saturday morning and frost or freezing conditions are likely Monday night.
It should warm up on Saturday with a high temperature in the mid-50s under a partly sunny sky; it will be about the same on Sunday and chillier on Monday with a high of 47 degrees, said NWS.
But the agency is forecasting a sunny sky and a high in the mid-60s a week from today.
