SHOWERS AND STORMS COULD DAMPEN SOME OF YOUR WEEKEND PLANS

SPRINGFIELD (WICS) - The work week is ending on a nice note across central Illinois, but this stretch of sunny skies and above normal temperatures is about to come to an abrupt end. Saturday will still feature pleasant Fall weather with a mix of sun and clouds and afternoon highs extremely mild for October with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s.

But the high pressure system that has brought days of unseasonably mild conditions will give way to an approaching sharp cold front. By late Saturday night after midnight, expect scattered showers and storms as the cold front draws closer. Even more periods of scattered showers and storms are likely on Sunday with blustery northwest winds and temperatures turning much cooler as highs fall back into the mid 60s. Rainfall totals could range from 1/4 to 1/2 inch by late Sunday.

Then next week will bring several weak weather disturbances, and more spotty, isolated showers are possible Monday through midweek. Temperatures will also get even chillier with highs topping out in the mid 60s on Monday and then struggle just to reach the mid 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Be sure to "LIKE" Cheryl Lemke, Joe Crain and Thomas Patrick on Facebook and "FOLLOW" them on Twitter for the latest forecasts for central Illinois.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the upper 70s Friday and Saturday; mid 60s Sunday and Monday; mid 50s Tuesday and Wednesday; and, mid 60s Thursday. Overnight lows will fall to the low 60s Friday and Saturday night; low 50s Sunday night; mid 40s Monday night; upper 30s Tuesday night; and, mid 40s Wednesday night.

FOR EAST CENTRAL ILLINOIS

RAIN CHANCES OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, BECOMING MUCH COOLER

Champaign (WCCU) - Beginning overnight into Sunday, a cold front will pass across east central Illinois to bring us showers which will continue into the day and evening. Highs will be near 70 on Sunday.

We begin next week with mostly sunny skies overall, but with a chance of showers. We'll see a high on Monday in the mid-60s as a cooling trend takes our daytime highs even lower by midweek. Tuesday will be partly cloudy with a chance of showers and the upper 50s, with temperatures falling even further into the mid-50s on Wednesday under mostly sunny skies. Mostly sunny skies will continue into Thursday as conditions begin a warming trend which will take us back to a high in the low 60s.
