WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
854 PM CDT WED AUG 26 2015

Mostly sunny skies prevailed across most of central and southeast
Illinois through the afternoon hours.  The exception were portions
of north central and northeast Illinois where mostly cloudy skies
dominated into late afternoon.  Temperatures rose into the
70s for most locations.  The exceptions were in the more
cloudy areas where temperatures were more subdued and
struggled to make it into the 70 degree mark.  By mid evening,
mercury readings had fallen to around the 60 degree mark for most
locations.

As an area of high pressure drifts eastward through Thursday, the
dry conditions will persist over much of the Midwest. However,
a few showers and thunderstorms will be possible over Missouri and
Iowa, ahead of a developing storm system over the Plains. This
system will slowly push eastward, increasing the risk of rain late
this week. The best chances will generally be from Iowa northeast
into Wisconsin, although scattered thunderstorms will be possible as
far south as central Illinois and Indiana.

Low temperatures across the Midwest tonight will mainly be in the
50s, with highs on Thursday in the mid 70s to lower 80s.
