Despite increasing clouds throughout the day, afternoon high temperatures were able to reach the upper 50s and low 60s across much of the Heart of Illinois. Temperatures will gradually fall through the 50s this evening, under mostly cloudy skies.
Skies will remain mostly cloudy overnight and scattered showers will begin to move in from the southwest. Not everyone will see the showers and those that do can expect them to be very light in nature. The best chance will be for communities along and south of the I-74 corridor.
Scattered shower chances will continue through mid-morning. Skies will be mostly cloudy throughout the day tomorrow and afternoon highs will warm into the upper 50s. An isolated afternoon/evening shower cannot be ruled out.
Mostly cloudy skies with some filtered sunshine is expected for Sunday. Temperatures will warm into the low 60s across the area. The majority of the area will stay dry, however an isolated afternoon shower or two is possible.
A very nice start to the work week is on tap for Monday, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the low to mid 60s. What follows will not be quite as nice.
A passing cold front will bring much cooler air for Tuesday, with highs only topping out in the upper 40s. Rain is possible Tuesday, along with a wintry mix of rain and snow.
Ground temperatures are too warm for any frozen precipitation to stick. That said, be sure to stay tuned for the latest information as the forecast evolves into next week.
