FALL IS HERE, BUT WHERE IS THE FALL WEATHER?
Champaign (WCCU) - A ridge of high pressure sitting over the Midwest will keep us with mostly clear skies, dry conditions along with more Summer like conditions as we get into the first full day of Fall on Saturday. Expect sunny skies to continue each day through the weekend and even into next week.
Daytime highs will top out in the low 90s, near record territory, but still a few degrees less than most of the daily records through the end of the month. Lows will bottom out in the mid 60s, reflecting where the dew points will be over the next few days as well. Conditions will be muggy through the period.
The 8-14 day national forecast is projecting us to be in the below average temperatures are, while precipitation will be below average as well. So, as we approach the end of the month and get into October, we can expect a change to much cooler, and continued dry conditions as harvest is underway.
