southeast Illinois overnight, as high pressure stretched across the

southerly winds will bring warmer and more humid air into the
Midwest. Hot and humid conditions are expected for Tuesday, while
a cold front moving in from the west will bring increasing chances
for showers and thunderstorms, for Tuesday night and Wednesday.
