While the day started out sunny across central and southeast
Illinois, clouds quickly increased late morning through the
afternoon. Temperatures reached well into the 70s over most of the
area by afternoon.
As high pressure exits the Midwest this weekend, it will give way to
a stormier pattern. While much of the region will be dry on
Saturday, showers and thunderstorms will increase west of the
Mississippi River Saturday afternoon and evening. Expect the rain
threat to spread eastward Sunday, continuing into Memorial Day.
Regional low temperatures tonight will range from the lower
40s across northern Indiana, to the mid 50s in Missouri. Highs on
Saturday will generally be in the 70s across the Midwest,
approaching 80 degrees across Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky.
