NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
1121 AM CDT FRI MAY 15 2015
Partly to mostly sunny skies were seen across central and southeast
Illinois, through the late morning hours. An area of light rain
showers were seen across southeast Illinois this morning, mainly
south of I 70 and east of I 57. Temperatures around the area at 11
a.m., ranged from 68 degrees at Lacon, to 78 degrees at Effingham.
A warm front will lift into the Great Lakes region, before becoming
rather stationary. This will result in warmer and more humid air
overspreading much of the Midwest today, although the cooler
conditions will persist north of the front, in Wisconsin and northern
Iowa. Periodic showers and thunderstorms will occur across the region
into the weekend, with the most potent storms occurring as a cold
front pushes through the Midwest during the weekend. This greater
risk of severe weather will be west of the Mississippi River on
Saturday, and reaching across Illinois and Wisconsin on Sunday.
High temperatures today, will range from the middle 50s across
northern Wisconsin, to the middle 80s across locations, mainly
south of I 70.
Overnight low temperatures, will range from the lower 40s across
northern Wisconsin, to the middle 60s across the southern portions
of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and western Kentucky.
