Is this winter\'s last gasp for southern IL? It\'s the big question as a winter storm moved in on Sunday less than 24 hours after the region saw temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s. While not much snow accumulation is expected, up to a couple inches at best, it has broken the streak of warm days seen across southern Illinois where high temperatures have been 50-degrees or better since March 7.
Video package shot in Carbondale, Illinois in Jackson County where the high temperatures on Saturday, less than 24 hours ago, reached 68-degrees. Gusty winds have also been experienced with gusts up to 30mph consistently through the day.
Carbondale is located approximately 2 hours south/southeast of St. Louis.
