WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
301 PM CDT WED AUG 20 2014

A large area of showers and thunderstorms tracked across central
Illinois today, primarily impacting locations south of the I-74
corridor. Some of the storms produced frequent lightning, gusty
winds, and torrential downpours. The highest rainfall totals
occurred in Springfield, where several observers measured over 2
inches of rain. The precipitation diminished and came to an end by
mid-afternoon.

A stationary frontal boundary extending from Iowa to northern
Indiana will serve as the focus for shower and thunderstorm
development over the next couple of days. The next round of storms
will track along the front late tonight into Thursday morning,
mainly affecting areas north of the I-74 corridor. While widespread
severe weather is not anticipated, gutsy winds and locally heavy
rainfall be possible. As the front lifts further northward, rain
chances will shift into the Great Lakes by the end of the week. The
end result will be hot and mainly dry weather across much of the
Midwest through early next week.

Overnight low temperatures, will range from the middle 60s in
northeast Indiana, to the middle 70s across Missouri and western
Kentucky.

High temperatures on Thursday, will range from the lower 80s in
northeast Indiana, to the upper 90s across central and southern
Missouri.
