East Central Illinois Storm Team Forecast Summary


A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for the following counties in the FOX-Illinois Channel 27 viewing area: McLean, Piatt, Moultrie, Macon.

Champaign (WCCU) - Our late January weather continues with above average temperatures for now and instead of seeing snow, we're seen rain. Our unusual weather it appears will be with us through at least the end of the month as projections are still calling for above average temperatures and near average precipitation.

For the overnight, expect more rain showers and the development of patchy fog across most of the area. It may be more dense across western Illinois, though, as you travel in that direction tomorrow. The prospects for rain should move out of our immediate area by dawn tomorrow morning. Leaving the rest of the day on Friday under the clouds with patchy fog. Highs will be in the low 50s, a relatively mild temperature reading.

On Saturday, temperatures will only fall to the mid 40s, but fog is still possible early in the day. We hope to get enough clearing to take place to allow for at least some sun to break through the clouds, although rain chances will increase later Saturday evening and overnight into Sunday. Meanwhile on Saturday, we look forward to seeing highs near 60-degrees by the afternoon! Lows by early Sunday will be once again in the low 40s with a 30-percent chance of showers on Sunday, but it will be cooler topping out in the low 50s.

Cooler air will return for early next week with once again a chance of rain showers on Monday. It's only a 30-percent chance of showers as highs end up in the mid 40s. Tuesday, we'll be under the clouds once again, but an incoming weather system could bring us another shot of rain during the overnight into early Wednesday. Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 40s, with low 40s on Wednesday. Even cooler air will filter in for the last couple of days of next week with highs expected to be in the mid to upper 30s, lows will fall to the low 30s..
