SUMMER TIME WARMTH, HUMIDITY WITH POSSIBLE STORMS THRU FRIDAY
CHAMPAIGN (WCCU) - An upper level low over the Midwest will provide a catalyst for the development of scattered showers/storms through the end of the week. Expect a marginal threat of seeing some storms with strong gusty winds and hail development. With the amount of humidity in the atmosphere we can also expect heavy rainfall at times with a potential of 1.5 to 2-inches of rainfall through the end of the week.
Over the weekend, we'll see mostly sunny skies with daytime highs in the low to mid 80s and overnight lows in the mid 60s. The next weather system will arrive late Sunday and into Monday and Tuesday. During that time there will be 40 to 50-percent chance of showers/storms with at least a small chance of seeing strong to severe storms develop.
