WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
710 PM CDT SAT JUL 4 2015
High pressure brought mostly sunny skies, light winds, and
comfortable humidity levels to central and southeast Illinois on
Saturday. Highs reached the lower 80s.
High pressure will provide clear and calm conditions for much of the
Midwest overnight. Temperatures and humidity levels will gradually
increase the next few days, as southerly flow develops on the back
side of high pressure. A cold front over the Plains, will push
southeast into Illinois by late Monday and Tuesday. This will bring a
good chance of showers and thunderstorms to northwest parts of Iowa
and Wisconsin Sunday night, where there is a slight chance of severe
storms, and into the Illinois River Valley by Monday afternoon.
Showers and thunderstorms are then likely across much of the region,
for Monday night and Tuesday.
Low temperatures tonight will drop into the 60s for much of the
Midwest, while highs on Sunday will reach the 80s.
