Temperatures began the day in the mid to upper 60s along with light

been bouts of sunshine in between. The clouds have decreased in
coverage across much of the area, except portions of southern IL
near the I-64 corridor this afternoon. 3pm temperatures have jumped
into the 80s, with a few spots reporting upper 80s where sunshine
has been more prevalent. Isolated showers and thunderstorms have
bubbled up over parts of the area this afternoon, with southern
Illinois seeing the strongest of these.
A rather unsettled pattern will be in place through the first part
of the weekend with daily chances of showers and thunderstorms over
parts of or all of the area. The best coverage looks to be Wednesday
into Thursday as a cold front approaches from the Plains states, and
again on Saturday. There will be many dry hours over this time
period though. Temperatures will slowly cool down from highs in the
mid to upper 80s on Wednesday to around 80 this weekend. Lows will
mainly be in the 60s through this period.
