Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 330 am cdt Sat sep 23 2017
the late season heat wave will continue a few more day across
central and southeast il with high temperatures reaching close to
record levels. Below in the climate section are record highs for
today, Sunday and Monday for 10 of our larger cities in our cwa,
which are mostly in the lower 90s.

A 588-590 dm 500 mb subtropical ridge from texas NE across il and
into the eastern great lakes, will continue the summer like heat
wave through Monday (and over southeast il thru tue) as 592 dm
500 mb high over pa by 18z Sunday and ridges back into il into
early next week.

Patchy fog possible over eastern il until mid morning, otherwise
another hot day ahead with partly to mostly sunny skies. Highs of
90-95f today with afternoon heat indices in the 90s. A weak
disturbance that brought isolated convection to parts of in and
east central il yesterday afternoon and early evening appears to
shift west of i-57 today and this area will likely see more
cumulus clouds this afternoon. Most models keep our CWA dry today,
though hrrr shows isolated QPF western CWA into mid afternoon but
this model is also showing QPF currently where we have nearly
clear skies. Fair weather expected tonight as diurnally driven
cumulus clouds dissipate this evening. Lows mostly in the mid
60s, with some upper 60s over the il river valley.

Long term (Sunday through Saturday)
issued at 330 am cdt Sat sep 23 2017
the heat wave will likely continue through Monday with highs in
the lower 90s, except upper 80s Monday northern CWA from peoria
and bloomington north. Dry conditions expected through most of cwa
through Tue morning, though do have slight chance of convection
far NW CWA Tue morning as a cold front moves into far NW il. This
front will bring 20-30% chance of showers and thunderstorms over
the il river valley Tue afternoon mainly from i-55 nw. Highs tue
range from lower 80s by galesburg to near 90f from i-57 east. The
cold front to sweep thru rest of CWA during Tue night though lift
will be weak and pops are either slight or none going into wed.

Much cooler air ushers in on Wed behind cold front with highs
ranging from lower 70s NW of il river, to the lower 80s SE of
i-70. Dry and seasonable temperatures expected Wed night thru
Saturday. Highs Thu in the low to mid 70s, and cooler upper 60s
and lower 70s Fri Sat as a broad upper level trof digs south
across the great lakes and into the oh tn river valleys.

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.
