1119 AM CDT FRI JUL 31 2015
Mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures were seen across central and
southeast Illinois this morning. Some cumulus clouds were starting to
form across the area at late morning. Temperatures around the area at
11 a.m. were in the 80s, ranging from 81 degrees at Galesburg, to 86
degrees at Decatur, Peoria, Rantoul, and Mount Carmel.
A weak cold front will drop southward out of the Northern Plains,
triggering isolated thunderstorms across Missouri and the central
sections of Illinois and Indiana, this afternoon and evening.
Once this feature passes, warm and dry weather will be on tap for
tomorrow before a stronger cold front brings a better chance for
thunderstorms to much of the Midwest tomorrow night into Sunday.
High temperatures today will generally be in the middle to upper 80s
across the Midwest, with a few lower 90s across Missouri, southern
Illinois, and western Kentucky.
Low temperatures tonight will mainly be in the 60s across the region,
though lows across western Missouri are expected to be in the low
70s, while temperatures should fall into the 50s across Wisconsin.
