.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...

A rather active weather pattern will continue through the end of

ramping up again starting on Friday as a storm system pulls out
of the Southern Plains and brings periodic chances for thunderstorms
to the area.

The Illinois River will remain in flood into the weekend.

evening. Current indications suggest the primary time frame for
