WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
315 PM CDT TUE OCT 6 2015
Cloudiness faded over much of central and southeast Illinois through
midday, leaving partly sunny skies. However, locations west of a
Peoria to Springfield line remained mostly cloudy into mid
afternoon. Those areas were a bit cooler as a result, only reaching
near 70 degrees. However, areas further east generally were in the
mid 70s this afternoon, with some upper 70s south of I-70.
High pressure will slowly move east across the Midwest through
Wednesday. The stagnant weather pattern will result in areas of fog
overnight. As the high exits, a storm system will approach from the
northern Plains. This will bring showers and thunderstorms to the
Midwest Thursday and Thursday night, lingering into Friday near the
Ohio River. Temperatures will continue to warm through Thursday,
before a brief cooling trend takes place at the end of the week.
Regional low temperatures tonight will mainly be in the 50s,
although 30s and 40s will be more common across Wisconsin. Highs on
Wednesday will be in the 60s across Wisconsin, and in the 70s
elsewhere across the Midwest.
