Mostly cloudy skies were the rule across central and southeast
Illinois this morning, with a few peaks of sunshine from time to
time. Temperatures around the area at 11 a.m. ranged from 71 degrees
at Galesburg and Lacon, to 78 degrees at Lawrenceville and Rantoul.
A cold front will approach the Midwest from the Northern Plains early
this week. This will bring showers with it, mainly from Iowa to
southern Wisconsin today, then as far south as central Illinois by
tomorrow morning. Areas closer to the Ohio Valley will be affected by
an upper level disturbance lifting north from the Gulf Coast, with
showers and a few thunderstorms arriving tonight and tomorrow. Any
lingering rain will diminish tomorrow night as the front gets further
south, and dry conditions will return for the middle of the week.
High temperatures across the Midwest today will mainly be in the low
to mid 80s, though temperatures will top out in the mid 70s across
northwest Iowa and much of Wisconsin.
Low temperatures tonight will generally be in the low to mid 60s
across the region, though 50s will prevail across Iowa and Wisconsin.
