southeast Illinois this evening. Winds were light out of the east
southeast. Temperatures ranged from 67 degrees at the Edgar County

Low pressure over eastern Nebraska will bring heat and humidity
into the Midwest this weekend. Lows tonight will only drop down
into the upper 60s to low 70s as warmer air begins to filter into
the area. High temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s, along with
high humidity, will make for a more typical summer day on Saturday.
Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop
Saturday afternoon and evening. Thunderstorms across central and
eastern portions of Illinois could be strong to severe on Saturday
afternoon and evening with damaging winds, heavy rains, frequent
lightning and hail possible. The chance for showers and thunderstorms
will continue through Sunday ahead of a cold front pushing southward
from the upper Midwest.
