WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
325 PM CDT FRI AUG 28 2015
Cloud cover thickened across much of central Illinois today, but
skies remained partly sunny in east central and southeast parts of
the state. The added sunshine allowed those areas to reach the
upper 70s and lower 80s. Cooler conditions persisted northwest
of the Illinois River, where temperatures had only reached the lower
70s by mid afternoon.
A storm system will move through the Midwest tonight and Saturday,
bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms. The best chance of
rain is expected from northern Iowa to southern Wisconsin. A few
showers and storms will linger into Sunday across Indiana, but the
remainder of the region will mainly be dry. After the recent cooler
weather over much of the Midwest, a trend toward warmer temperatures
is on tap for the upcoming week.
Regional low temperatures tonight will mainly be in the 60s, with
50s from northern Iowa to northern Wisconsin. Highs on Saturday will
range from the lower 70s over eastern Wisconsin, to the upper 80s
in western Kentucky.
