East Central Illinois Storm Team Forecast Summary


(Champaign) - Somewhat active weather will take us into the weekend along with a warm-up which will take our highs to 70-degrees or above on Friday.

Meanwhile, for Thursday, a mix of clouds and sun will be with us for most of the day as highs rise to the low to mid 50s. Some to our south and west is seeing a few light showers.

By late Friday night into Saturday we expect showers with a few scattered storms will be expected to move in across mid Illinois and east central Illinois for the first half of the weekend. Saturday will be cloudy with occasional showers and thunderstorms from the early morning through the evening. Highs on Saturday will be in the low to mid 60s.

So far it looks like any outdoor activities expected for the weekend could be a wash least the one's we like to do. A ride on the bike, in the convertible, or a round or two of golf may be tough, but cooking out may be possible between bouts of rain. On the plus side, working in the yard could be put off for awhile as conditions will be too wet!

On Sunday, we'll begin with a low of 52 (which is pretty close to the average high for this time of year). Highs on Sunday will be a little lower topping out in the low 60s. Skies will be cloudy, and we could still see a few scattered showers over east central Illinois during much of the day.

For next week, we begin with more chances of showers and a high of 65-degrees, but by Tuesday and Wednesday we'll see partly sunny skies each day with highs in the low 60s, lows in the low 40s.
