Do you have a weather picture from central or southeast Illinois that you would like to share?  The National Weather Service in Lincoln is looking for pictures that represent the various weather extremes that occur over our County Warning Area (in an area generally bounded by Galesburg, Danville, Lawrenceville, and Jacksonville; click on the link for a map).  If you are interested in participating in our photo gallery, please send your photo to the Webmaster at W-ILX.webmaster@noaa.gov

All pictures must be in a digital format (jpeg, gif, or png image).  We would prefer that images be kept to a maximum size of 1024 x 768 pixels.  We also ask you to include the date and nearest city of the weather event captured on film. If you'd like your name included, please provide that as well. Thanks for participating!
