Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Lincoln IL 755 PM CDT Thu Jun 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 755 PM CDT Thu Jun 4 2020

One more very warm and humid day is on tap on Friday, before a cold front brings less humid conditions for the weekend. This front will bring a few showers and thunderstorms once again, though a large part of the area will remain dry. After that, dry weather will prevail into the first part of next week.

UPDATE. Issued at 755 PM CDT Thu Jun 4 2020

Earlier rain has pulled out of areas south of I-70, while isolated convection that tried to fire west north of a Quincy to Bloomington line struggled to maintain itself more than a half hour or so. Main action this evening has been across north central and northeast Iowa, and will need to watch its evolution to see if it scrapes the northern CWA later tonight.

Main forecast updates were to tweak the sky and temperature trends, and add a mention of some patchy fog over east central and southeast Illinois toward sunrise.

SHORT TERM. (This evening through Friday night) ISSUED AT 330 PM CDT Thu Jun 4 2020

Remnants of an MCV over southeast Illinois should move east into IN late this afternoon/early this evening, so will be keeping a brief period of chance of showers and storms for a few hours. Then skies should become mostly clear throughout the CWA for the reminder of the night. Some increase in clouds is possible after midnight as remnants of a large complex of storms that develops and moves across the northern plains moves into northwest Illinois toward morning. Any leftover outflow boundary from tonight's system could become the focus for more showers and storms for Friday. However, all the new CAM runs suggest that any outflow boundary will not move through the CWA or just move quickly through, so chances of precip do not look as high as before. Given there is still some uncertainty with this mesoscale setup, will keep slight chance pops in forecast for the CWA for Friday into Friday night. Overnight lows should be in the upper 60s tonight as warm air will still be in place over the area. Upper 80s to around 90 for highs tomorrow still looks reasonable as well. Then it does cool a little by Fri night with cooler highs in the lower to middle 60s across most of the CWA and upper 60s in the southeast.

LONG TERM. (Saturday through Thursday) ISSUED AT 330 PM CDT Thu Jun 4 2020

Dry weather can be expected through the weekend and into the beginning of next week as ridging builds into the area. High temps across the area through the weekend will be in the 80s with temps beginning to warm again by Monday. The next chance of precip will be Tue through Wed as remnants of the current TS in the gulf move into the area. Current long term models shows the storm making landfall around Sunday and then moving north just west of the Mississippi river valley. If models correct, this track will bring it into IL. Rain appears likely over the entire CWA with most of the precip, and highest pops, being Tue night. Chance of precip should early Wed but timing differences are seen in the models, so keeping chance pops in forecast for Wed with a slight chance for Wed night. Once this precip moves in on Tue, afternoon highs for rest of the extended period will only reach the lower to middle 80s.

AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday evening) Issued at 617 PM CDT Thu Jun 4 2020

VFR conditions largely expected to prevail the next 24 hours. Only area of concern is with KCMI, where heavy rain last night and light winds may result in a period of light fog toward sunrise. Isolated early evening showers/storms north of KPIA/KBMI expected to be too sparse for a VCTS mention. While winds will largely be south/southwest through the period, a trend toward the west is expected late in the forecast period as a cold front moves in to the area.

ILX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NONE.

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.
