Showers, some thunder expected Monday night

Posted at 6:40 AM, Aug 12, 2019

An area of low pressure will slide across the state line this evening, bringing showers and perhaps a rumble of thunder, but the heaviest rain and severe storms will be in Illinois. Most locations will pick up a tenth to a quarter of an inch with higher amounts possible in the south. Lows will be in the mid 60s, close to our dew points, so patchy fog is again possible tonight after the rain comes to an end near midnight.

Tuesday will start with clouds, but we will see some clearing by midday with highs in the upper 70s. There is a chance for some showers and storms late in the day with a reinforcing cold front, but not everyone will see storms. Some showers may linger into Wednesday morning, but temperatures and the dew points are going to drop.

The comfortable air arrives Thursday with the return of more sunshine with highs in the mid 70s. The mercury rises Friday along with the moisture in the air, and that will continue into the weekend with highs in the 80s again.
