A strong cold front is expected to sweep through the region later on Tuesday evening. While some showers and storms will pop up in the heat of the afternoon, we expect most of the storm activity in Central Illinois to be along this cold front.
Tuesday evening will see some pop-up showers and storms with temperatures in the 70s. Winds will be from the southwest at 10 to 15 mph.
It won't be until after 8:00 PM that the cold front will begin to push into more of our area. Any storms that are along this front that happen to be severe would most likely be for a wind threat, although all modes of severe weather are possible.
Showers and storms along this front should be out of the area by about Midnight. Then the winds will switch out of the northwest to as much as 25 mph causing the temperatures to fall into the lower 50s.
Wednesday is expected to be a much cooler day behind the cold front with temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s with partly cloudy skies. Winds will be from the northwest at 5 to 15 mph.
