weather question - fulton county, IL

I'm going to be bowhunting in Fulton County, IL in early Dec - what kind of weather is typical?  I know it "could" be anything - but what do you usually have that time of year?

You can get a lot of info at

You can get a lot of info at weather.com - like monthly averages, rainfall averages, etc.

I am in SC and am going to SE Illinois in November and it looks like the temps basically run about 14 - 16 degrees colder there than here.

Try that and see if it helps.

thanks Jim - that's a good resource, and I didn't think of it

good luck to you on your IL trip

it will be my first to that part of the state, and my first time hunting in IL
