Rain moving in.....
*Rain/Storms Saturday Morning
*Breezy Afternoon, Rain Returns Tonight
*Dry but chilly on Sunday
Good Saturday Morning
Scattered rain will continue through the morning hours. Heavier showers and storms are likely in southern Illinois until the late morning. None are expected to be severe. Mild temperatures this morning ranging from the 40s to the 50s. There may be some light fog in areas as well.
This afternoon transitions to all rain showers. The heaviest rain chances will be in our northeastern counties. But a cold front will move through tonight and some storms could develop along it. The front will bring cooler and drier air into the Heartland causing Sunday to be cloudy, dry, and temperatures below average. Rain returns Sunday night and will continue much of next week. Temperatures today will be tricky and spread out due to our northern counties on the other side of the warm front. Highs looking to be from the 40s near Mount Vernon,IL to near 70 in Union City, TN. If the warm front pushes more north, then some of our northern counties may warm up more.
Next week is looking to be a very wet week. Flooding may be a concern in areas with larger rain amounts from this weekend, and the next system on Monday/Tuesday.
Pack an umbrella!
