WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
438 AM CDT FRI AUG 15 2014

Mostly clear skies were present across northern portions of central
and southeast Illinois this morning. A band of cloud cover was
located over southern portions of central and southeast Illinois
this morning as a frontal boundary was stalled out over southern
Illinois. Winds were light out of the east southeast. Temperatures
were in the low 50s to low 60s across the area as of 4 a.m.

Surface high pressure will remain over Illinois and Indiana this
morning into the early afternoon, bringing a short period of cool and
fair weather. While much of the region will remain dry this
afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will begin to increase across
Iowa, near a developing warm front. As this front lifts northeast,
the threat of showers and storms will spread into portions of
Illinois tonight and especially Saturday. Unsettled weather will
continue on Sunday, as low pressure tracks through the region,
bringing more showers and thunderstorms. Significant rainfall amounts
could result from the system on Sunday, since it will move slowly
across central and southeast Illinois.

Highs this afternoon will reach the upper 70s to low 80s across
the region.

Lows tonight will drop down into the low to upper 60s throughout
central and southeast Illinois.
