Partly to mostly sunny skies persisted this afternoon southeast of
I-55, while mostly cloudy skies prevailed northwest of I-55. A few
spotty light rain showers and sprinkles were along and north of a
Rushville to Bloomington line at mid afternoon. Mild temperatures at
3 pm, ranged from 63 degrees in Galesburg, to 79 degrees at the Mount
Carmel airport in southern Lawrence county. Breezy southwest winds
of 15 to 25 mph with gusts of 25 to 35 mph prevailed ahead of a cold
front over eastern Illinois. Winds turned west northwest at 10 to
20 mph behind the cold front from I-55 northwest.

A cold front moving east toward I-57 will push southeast into
the Ohio river valley tonight. This will bring a chance of showers
and a few thunderstorms for areas southeast of I-55 tonight into
Friday morning. Pacific air behind the cold front will keep mild
temperatures in the region with highs in the 60s and lower 70s
Friday, and warming into the 70s this weekend. A stronger storm
system will bring a better chance of showers and thunderstorms with
heavier rains to the region early next week.

Low temperatures tonight will be in the 40s to mid 50s across the
region, except cooler 30s over Wisconsin, northeast Iowa and
northwest Illinois.

Highs Friday, will be in the 60s and lower 70s across the Midwest,
with cooler mid to upper 50s in northern Wisconsin.
