LOOKING NICE TO FINISH THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND

SPRINGFIELD (WRSP) - Cold front is pushing across central Illinois this afternoon. That was enough to pop a few showers in eastern Illinois, but the rain and storms are now all east into Indiana. Humidity is starting to drop on the backside of the front and that'll lead to very comfortable weather conditions for the next few days. Memorial Day will be be warm with highs in the low 80s and breezy with winds gusting up to 25 mph out of the southwest. Low humidity should keep us dry, however, the diurnal heating of the sunshine will be enough to create scattered cumulus clouds during the afternoon. These clouds may eventually produce a few isolated showers and perhaps an isolated thundershower too.

Tuesday will be comfortable and dry again, but a slight disturbance moving into southern Illinois during the evening could skirt by our southern counties. Wednesday will be sunny and again, comfortable, highs in the mid 70s both these days.

Unsettled weather with chances for showers and thunderstorms return Thursday evening and continue through at least Saturday, and maybe Sunday too. Few details about the late week/next weekend wet weather for now, as computer models have been widely variable in terms of timing of any showers and storms in central Illinois.

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

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the low 80s Memorial Day; mid to upper 70s Tuesday through Thursday; low 80s Friday and Saturday; and mid 70s Sunday. Overnight lows will fall to the mid 50s Sunday through Wednesday night; mid 60s Thursday and Friday night; and low 60s Saturday night.

FOR EAST CENTRAL ILLINOIS

THE GOAL: SQUEEZE IN OUTDOOR WEEKEND FUN AROUND CHANCES FOR STORMS

(Champaign) - Later on Saturday, our rain and storm chances are listed as a 50-percent likelihood and could continue on/off throughout the afternoon and evening with mild-warm conditions as highs reach back into the upper 70s. Even with a 50-percent chance of showers/storms we will be in the area which will be under a "slight" risk of strong to severe storms. Sunday's chances for showers/storms is still listed as a 40% chance, but we could see a little more sunshine between the clouds. Highs on Sunday will be in the mid 70s.

The Memorial Day Holiday is expected to bring us sunny skies and highs in the mid 70s. Overnight lows will end up in the low to mid 50s through Thursday morning. Skies will be partly cloudy on both Tuesday and Wednesday, while highs continue to be below average in the low to mid 70s. We could see another chance of showers on Thursday with highs in the mid 70s.
