1047 AM CDT FRI APR 29 2016
Mostly cloudy skies persisted across central and southeast
Illinois through much of the morning hours. However, clouds were
beginning to dissipate somewhat over the southeast by mid morning.
This allowed for some quicker warming of temperatures for the
southeast. Mercury readings by late morning ranged from the upper
40s over the northwest sector of the state, with lower 60s
reported in the southeast.
High pressure will briefly build into the upper Midwest and Great
Lakes, bringing dry weather to the region today. However, later
this evening and overnight, low pressure developing over the
Plains will spread rain north into Missouri and Illinois. This
system will slowly track across the region this weekend, bringing
periods of showers and thunderstorms.
Highs today will range from the mid 40s in northeast Illinois, to
the lower 70s in southern Illinois.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the upper 30s in
Wisconsin, to the lower 60s along the Ohio river.
