Update
Issued at 904 pm cdt Tue jun 27 2017
high pressure shifting off to the east and a low approaching the
upper midwest will allow a southerly flow to develop over the
upcoming day, bringing warmer temperatures tonight and tomorrow. A
fairly substantial boundary layer flow will bring gusty conditions
along with quite breezy conditions by late Wednesday morning,
especially north of i-70, and have updated forecast for stronger
winds gusts 15-20 mph with gusts approaching 30 mph. Otherwise,
forecast is in good shape, with at least a slight chance of
thunderstorms reaching the illinois river northwestward by
tomorrow afternoon.

Short term (this evening through Wednesday)
issued at 251 pm cdt Tue jun 27 2017
high pressure will continue to move off to the east as the upper
level pattern becomes zonal. Dry weather is expected tonight
through tomorrow morning, but with the high to the east, southerly
winds will return to the area during the day Wed and bring warmer
temps and higher dwpts into the area for the rest of the week.

Also expecting a storm complex to develop out west in eastern ne
late tonight and then move east across ia through tomorrow
morning. An associated outflow boundary from this storm complex
should be located across northwest il tomorrow afternoon. With the
increasing moisture, chance for storms will return for wed
afternoon.

Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)
issued at 251 pm cdt Tue jun 27 2017
as this first complex of storms redevelops and moves into the
great lakes region, the associated cold front outflow boundary
will begin to lay out over parts of central il, resulting in storm
possibilities continuing and increasing Wed night... With the
highest pops being in the north part of the cwa. The chance of
storms will continue thur during the day, but greater chances are
expected Thursday night into Friday as another complex of storms
develops out in the plains and then moves toward the area late
thur night into Friday. As the upper level pattern begins to
change from being zonal to a trough across the center of the us,
the chance of storms will continue into Friday night, but mainly
across the eastern and southeastern parts of the cwa.

Dry weather is then expected Sat and Sat night as the frontal
system pushes east and the pattern becomes northwest flow. This
pattern change will not bring a return to dry weather, but instead
bring periodic chances of storms for the latter part of the
weekend and into next week.

Temps will remain warm through the long term period even with
clouds precip and a change to a northwest flow over the weekend.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening)
issued at 638 pm cdt Tue jun 27 2017
vfr conditions expected for the next 24 hours although potential
for scattered thunderstorms will develop nearby to the NW of kpia
toward the end of the period. Due to low probability, have kept
mention of thunderstorms out of kpia TAF for now. Otherwise,
increasing cloud cover mainly at high and mid levels through the
period. Winds s-se 5-12 kts until 12-14z then increasing to s
16-22 kts with gusts 25-30 kts.

Ilx watches warnings advisories

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
