Rain chances return Thursday, but sunshine and unseasonably warm temperatures will be back -- just in time for the weekend!

A ridge of high pressure keeps mainly clear skies in place through early Thursday morning. However, clouds will be increasing into Thursday afternoon ahead of a warm front that will wring out a few scattered showers. Rain chances will quickly diminish by early Thursday evening with little in the way of any significant rainfall. The latest forecast models are keeping rain totals around a tenth-of-an-inch or less.

Sunshine builds back into the forecast heading into the weekend with temperatures warming into the mid- 70's over the weekend. Another rain chance develops late Monday night into early Tuesday morning along with cooling temperatures into mid-week across central Illinois.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the lower 60's Thursday; lower to mid- 70's Friday through Monday; mid- 60's Tuesday; and, upper 50's Wednesday. Overnight lows will drop to around 50 Thursday night; mid- 50's Friday night; mid- 40's Saturday night; mid- 50's Sunday; lower 60's Monday night; and, upper 40's Tuesday night.
