WEATHER NOW: Plenty of Sun Before a Wednesday Night Cold Front

Forecast

TODAY:

Wednesday is looking to be a beautiful day overall with mainly sunshine during the core of the day. Winds will be picking up from the south around 15 mph gusts.

TONIGHT:

A low pressure system will be building in by the later hours of our night bringing a line of showers late tonight that will be tapering off by early Thursday morning. Behind this system will be a cold front that will be dropping temperatures to the low 60s and upper 50s for the coming days.

TOMORROW:

THE WEEK AHEAD:

Once the rain is done late Friday night, we’ll be dry for a majority of the week.

The one chance for rain will come with a weak front Wednesday Evening into Early Thursday Morning.

DROUGHT MONITOR:

The latest Drought Monitor came out on Thursday and has a few dry spots near Bloomington and also in northern Illinois. Most of the area is fairly good though in terms of soil moisture, and with all these systems in the forecast, we could see some decent rainfall this week.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:

Our 8 to 14 day outlook has trended warmer and below normal for rain as we go into the third week of October.
