A rainy and dreary Monday was ongoing across Central and Southeast

the low is expected to push east across Illinois this evening. The
passage of the front will bring an end to rainfall early Tuesday

middle teens well behind the front across Northwest Iowa, to the
lower to middle 40s east of I-57.
Highs on Tuesday should range from the 20s across western Iowa to
near 50 degrees across Indiana and western Kentucky.
