High cirrus clouds continued streaming across central and
southeast Illinois through the evening hours. The gusty southerly
winds from this afternoon had mostly decreased to less than 10 mph by
late evening. Temperatures around the area at 9 PM ranged from 62
degrees at Paris and Robinson, to 72 degrees at Jacksonville.
Strong low pressure over central South Dakota will slowly track
eastward across southern Minnesota on Monday, and across the
southern Great Lakes Monday night into Tuesday. This will bring a
cold front southeast across the Midwest the next few days. This
will spread scattered showers and thunderstorms southeast from
Iowa and Wisconsin into the Illinois River Valley later tonight,
and across most areas north of the Ohio River by Monday night.
Rain chances will diminish Tuesday over Wisconsin, Iowa and
northern Illinois as Canadian high pressure pushes south toward
the Great Lakes region. Warm temperatures will continue another
day on Monday from Illinois southward, then start gradually
cooling from north to south on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Low temperatures overnight will generally be in the middle 50s
and lower 60s across the region.
High temperatures on Monday will top out upper 70s and lower 80s
across much of Midwest, although temperatures will only top out
in the lower and middle 70s across western Iowa and central
