Warm and humid conditions continued across central and southeast
Illinois this evening. Temperatures across the area at 9 p.m.,
ranged from 76 degrees at Paris, to 84 degrees at Peoria.
A nearly stationary frontal boundary extending from northeast Iowa to
southern Lake Michigan will serve as the focus for shower and
thunderstorm development over the next couple of days. A thunderstorm
complex is expected to develop near this boundary across eastern
Iowa, then track eastward across the northern sections of Illinois
and Indiana overnight into Friday morning. A few of these storms
could become severe, producing strong winds, hail, and locally heavy
rainfall mainly along the I-80 corridor. Once these storms clear the
area, hot and humid conditions will be the main weather story for the
upcoming weekend. High temperatures will climb into the 90s Saturday
through Monday, with heat index readings rising above 100 degrees.
Overnight low temperatures, will range from the middle 60s across
northern Wisconsin, to the upper 70s across western Missouri.
