FOR EAST CENTRAL ILLINOIS
CHANCES FOR SHOWERS/STORMS END THE WEEK, FOLLOWED BY A MILD STRETCH
Champaign (WCCU) - Some active weather will occur over the next couple of days thanks to the lingering effects of Tropical Storm Cindy and an incoming frontal boundary moving in from the northwest. They'll arrive at about the same time late Thursday to bring us at least a chance of showers/storms during the later part of the day into the overnight. The best chance of showers/storms for us here in east central Illinois appears to be the overnight into very early Friday morning. The front will push the precip to the southeast by the mid day on Friday to allow some late afternoon clearing which will last into the upcoming weekend. The front will also bring in some much cooler, drier air.
The best chance of showers/storms occur after midnight through the early morning on Friday. Friday's high will only be in the low 80s after seeing low 70s for an early morning low. Cooler, less humid air will filter in through the rest of the day. Low by early Saturday will be in the upper 50s.
So far the upcoming weekend includes partly cloudy skies for Saturday. Highs in the mid to upper 70s followed by lows once again in the upper 50s early Sunday. Sunday, expect mostly sunny skies and a high in the mid to upper 70s.
Next week will begin with partly cloudy skies, cool conditions as lows fall to the mid 50s, and highs on Monday only make it to upper 70s. By Tuesday temperatures will moderate a bit back into the low 80s for a high, then the low to mid 80s on Wednesday under partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. Overnight lows will increase into the low 60s on Monday through Wednesday morning.
