NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
839 PM CDT SUN AUG 17 2014
Scattered light showers continued to move across far southeast
Illinois this evening. Otherwise, partly cloudy skies remained over
most of central and southeast Illinois as the low pressure system
began pulling away from Illinois. Winds were light out of the
northeast. Temperatures were in the low to mid 70s across the area.
The lingering showers will continue to diminish tonight, leaving
mostly dry conditions across the Midwest overnight. Areas of fog
will develop tonight into Monday morning as high humidity exist at
the surface and winds are light. Mostly dry, humid conditions are on
tap Monday, but the threat of showers and thunderstorms will increase
across Iowa ahead of an incoming low pressure system moving into the
Great Lakes. This system will bring showers and thunderstorms to much
of the Midwest Monday night into Tuesday, with rain chances
continuing through the middle of the week.
Lows tonight will drop down into the mid to upper 60s across central
and southeast Illinois.
Highs on Monday will reach the low to mid 80s throughout the region.
