An area of steady rain pushed eastward out of western Illinois this
morning, but much of this was confined to areas west of I-55. Areas
further east saw mainly scattered showers. By late morning,
temperatures were mostly in the lower to mid 70s, slightly cooler
where rain was most steady.
An area of low pressure over northeast Missouri will only slowly
move southeast this weekend, resulting in periods of showers and
thunderstorms across the Midwest. Some of the rain may be locally
heavy from Missouri to southern Indiana. Further north, high
pressure will build into the Great Lakes, bringing dry conditions
to that area by Sunday.
The coolest weather across the Midwest today will mainly extend
from central Iowa to central Indiana, with mid 70s common.
Elsewhere in the Midwest, highs will reach the 80s. Lows tonight
will mainly be in the 60s, with 50s across Wisconsin.
