NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
719 PM CDT FRI SEP 19 2014
Sunny skies and southerly breezes helped boost temperatures up to
near normal, across central and southeast Illinois on Friday.
Highs reached the middle to upper 70s.
Seasonable temperatures will prevail ahead of an approaching cold
front, which will push southeast into Illinois on Saturday. This will
bring a good chance of showers and thunderstorms to Iowa and
Wisconsin tonight, and over the rest of the Midwest, for Saturday
afternoon and Saturday night. There is a slight chance of severe
storms with hail and high wind gusts, Saturday afternoon and evening,
over the northern half of Illinois, northwest Indiana and southern
lower Michigan. Clouds will decrease from the northwest on Sunday as
showers and thunderstorms diminish across the Ohio River Valley, and
high pressure settles back into the Midwest.
Low temperatures tonight will range from the lower 50s in central
Indiana, to the mid 60s in central Iowa. Highs on Saturday will
reach the upper 70s to middle 80s for much of the Midwest.
