424 AM CDT Tue Aug 19 2014

Monday had variable cloudy skies with near seasonal temperatures
and an increase in humidity. Afternoon highs Monday were in the
mid to upper 80s with rain falling across portions of southeast
Illinois and southwest Indiana. By this morning, temperatures were
in the upper 60s to low 70s with patchy dense fog reported in
many communities.

An upper level low will slide from the upper Midwest toward the
eastern Great Lakes through Wednesday night. Disturbances rotating
around this low will keep chances of showers and thunderstorms in
the forecast through midweek. Thereafter, an upper level ridge
builds into the area resulting in dry conditions Thursday through
the weekend. Heat and humidity will be the main story line as
afternoon highs soar into the mid 90s. Combined with the high
humidity heat indices will be in the 100 to 105 range. A taste of
real heat in an otherwise cool summer.
