WEATHER SUMMARY FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
324 PM CDT TUE SEP 1 2015

Morning thunderstorms produced heavy rainfall across areas east of
I-57. Radar estimated that 3 to 6 inches occurred, especially in a
corridor about 20 miles west of the border. A public report of 5
inches of rain was received near Martinsville, in Clark County. As
there was extensive cloud cover in that area, temperatures remained
in the 70s into early afternoon, before rapidly warming. The
remainder of central Illinois saw mostly sunny skies through the
day, which pushed temperatures into the lower 90s. However, with
the higher humidity levels, the heat index was close to 100 degrees
in some areas by mid afternoon.

The very warm and humid conditions will persist across the Midwest
the next several days, as an upper level area of high pressure
drifts eastward. There is some potential for showers and
thunderstorms from Wisconsin southeast to Indiana Wednesday night
and Thursday, but much of the region will remain dry this week.

Little variation in temperature is expected across much of the
Midwest, with lows tonight near 70 degrees and highs Wednesday near
90.
