Satellite images show that most of Illinois is under clouds. Most of Iowa and central-south Wisconsin is clear. Mostly cloudy conditions are forecast to start clearing out at about 6:00 p.m. tonight. The clouds during the day and the clearing at night bring colder temperatures. We are somewhat saved from even worse bitter cold because of the lack of snow cover.
