Mostly sunny skies and slightly cooler than normal temperatures
for mid August were noted across central and southeast Illinois
through the morning hours. Daybreak temperatures, in the lower to
middle 50s, had risen into the lower 70s by late morning.
A high pressure ridge situated over the Midwest just east of the
Mississippi River this morning, will gradually shift east into
the Ohio Valley, through Tuesday. This will bring another day of
dry weather to the region, along with mild temperatures and low
humidity. Once high pressure starts to move east of the Midwest on
Tuesday, temperatures and humidity will be on the increase. The
shower and thunderstorm chances will increase Tuesday night, ahead
of the next weather system.
High temperatures today, will top out in the upper 70s to middle
80s across the region.
Low temperatures overnight, will drop into the upper 50s and 60s.
