Tuesday was the warmest day this year to date in Peoria, as temperatures reached 51°. It won't be that warm today and the skies will not feature as much sunshine.
A passing cold front will result in a wind shift from the northwest. This shift in the winds will result in breezy conditions and will play a role in limiting the heating potential. Additionally, an increase in clouds is expected through the day, which will limit sunshine. Afternoon highs top out in the low 40s.
A partly cloudy and cold night is ahead, with temperatures falling into the low to mid 20s.
It will be a bit warmer tomorrow, with highs in the low to mid 40s under mostly sunny skies. The warming trend continues Friday, with highs in the mid to upper 40s. Temperatures peak Saturday, with highs in the low to mid 50s.
Our next chance for rain will be late in the day on Friday as a disturbance slides through. The thinking is that much of Friday will be dry, then scattered showers will be possible after 8 PM. Any shower activity is expected to be out of the area by daybreak Saturday.
