NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
329 PM CDT MON MAY 25 2015
Cloud cover decreased from west to east across the state during the
afternoon hours, and lingering showers in eastern Illinois moved
out of the state by early afternoon. Southwest winds gusted as high
as 45 mph around Champaign and Decatur late morning, with afternoon
gusts decreasing to around 20 to 25 mph by mid afternoon across
central and southeast Illinois. Temperatures ranged from the upper
70s to lower 80s.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase again across the
Midwest tonight. These will be most numerous on Tuesday. The threat
is expected to persist through Wednesday in areas closer to the Ohio
River, but diminish Tuesday night and Wednesday elsewhere, as high
pressure builds in from the central Plains. However, an active
weather pattern will remain in place much of the week, and
thunderstorm chances will again increase after mid week.
Regional low temperatures tonight will mainly be in the 60s, with
Tuesday highs in the 70s.
