The National Weather Service says wind speeds in central Illinois ranged between 50 and 60 miles per hour during a gusty Thursday afternoon that helped produce some scattered storms.

 

James Auten with the National Weather Service in Lincoln indicates central Illinois wind speeds were highest in Springfield at 61 mph and the highest wind gusts were recorded in southeast Illinois in Lawrenceville with a 67 mile per hour wind speed.

 

 

Auten says rain and snow will move off and could see some spots of sun in the afternoon Friday before starting a sunny but cool weekend.

 

 

DeWitt County Emergency Management Agency did not have any reports of significant wind damage as most of DeWitt County experienced fallen tree limbs along with minor structural damage to rooftops.
