FOR EAST CENTRAL ILLINOIS
A HOLIDAY WEEKEND WITH UNSETTLED WEATHER
(Champaign) - We get into the big travel weekend on Friday with mostly sunny skies early in the day, when yet another weather system preceded by a warm front makes its way into the region to start the weekend. By Friday afternoon expect clouds with a slight chance of rain and thunderstorms across much of the region. We'll experience warmer conditions with highs in the upper 70s.
Saturday will begin with continued clouds and mild overnight conditions and a low in the low 60s. Later on Saturday, our rain and storm chances are listed as a 40-percent likelihood and could continue on/off throughout the afternoon and evening with mild-warm conditions as highs reach back into the lower 80s. Even with just a 40-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 also be in the mid 70s.
The Memorial Day Holiday is expected to bring us partly cloudy skies and highs in the low to mid 70s. Overnight lows will end up in the low to mid 50s both for the early morning and early Tuesday morning. Skies will be partly cloudy on both Tuesday and Wednesday, while highs continue to be below average in the low to mid 70s.
