WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
342 PM CDT TUE MAY 26 2015
Lines of showers moved across central and eastern Illinois today,
accompanied by the occasional rumble of thunder. Some locations saw
wind gusts of 35 to 45 mph as the showers passed, but even outside
of the showers, southwest winds gusted over 30 mph at times.
Temperatures were greatly affected by the timing of the showers. At
mid afternoon, temperatures ranged from near 70 degrees north of
Peoria, to the lower 80s along the Indiana border from Paris south
As a cold front pushes across the Midwest, scattered showers and
thunderstorms will continue to be a threat into Wednesday. This is
most likely from Missouri to Indiana. Behind the front, high
pressure will bring a short period of dry conditions for Thursday,
before rain chances increase from west to east across the region
late in the week.
Regional low temperatures tonight will range from the 50s across
much of Wisconsin and Iowa, to the mid 60s in central Illinois and
Indiana, southward to the Ohio Valley. Highs on Wednesday will
generally be in the lower 80s, although mid to upper 70s will be more
common across the eastern half of Wisconsin.
