WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
1021 AM CDT MON AUG 25 2014

Mostly sunny to sunny skies were present across central and southeast
Illinois late this morning. Heat and humidity are already beginning
to ramp up for the day, with temperatures in the low to mid 80s and
heat indices in the 90s, with heat indices at Springfield and
Jacksonville already at 100.

The oppressive heat and humidity will keep its hold over much of the
Midwest through Tuesday, with highs climbing well into the 90s and
heat index values over 100 degrees in many locations. A cold front
sliding through the northwest portions of Iowa and Wisconsin will
bring some slightly cooler temperatures, and the chance for showers
and thunderstorms, to that portion of the region today. As the front
slowly sags southeast before stalling out, cooler temperatures, along
with daily chances for showers and thunderstorms, will settle into
Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana by Wednesday through the end of the
week.

High temperatures this afternoon will range from near 80 degrees
across eastern Wisconsin, to around 100 degrees across central and
southwest Missouri.

Low temperatures will once again be on the mild side, only dropping
down into the mid 60s over central Wisconsin, to the low to middle
70s across central and southwest Missouri.
