fair weather will continue over much of central and southeast il
tonight, with seasonably cool lows in the mid to upper 50s.
An approaching upper level system into the mid mississippi river
valley on Sunday and Sunday night will start to bring some
showers and isolated thunderstorms back into the area especially
over east central and southeast il by later Sunday afternoon into
Sunday night. Mostly cloudy skies are expected on Sunday with
highs of 75 to 80 degrees. Showers and some thunderstorms will
remain possible Monday through Tuesday, with the best chances
during Monday night as a cold front passes through the area.

1027 mb canadian high pressure over the northeast great lakes will
drift east into new england on Sunday. Scattered diurnally driven
cumulus clouds with bases around 5k ft over central il this
afternoon should diminish as sunset. Fair and seasonably cool
weather will continue tonight over much of the area as mid high
clouds increase from the SW overnight with lows in the mid to
upper 50s. Coolest lows overnight in NE CWA where less cloud cover
Latest models continue to show an upper level trof moving east
into ia mo ar by late Sunday afternoon, and increasing WAA ahead
of this trof into il during the day Sunday. Models have continued
quicker with spreading chances of showers into CWA on Sunday and
Sunday night. Have 20-30% chance of showers from springfield to
terre haute south on Sunday, with isolated thunderstorms possible
south of i-70 late Sunday afternoon. Mostly cloudy skies Sunday
keeps temps a bit cooler with highs 75-80f, coolest in SW cwa
where more clouds expected thru the day Sunday.
Long term (Sunday night through Saturday)
issued at 340 pm cdt Sat aug 24 2019
the upper level trof disturbance slowly moves east over the ms
river valley by overnight Sunday night and increase chances of
showers and isolated thunderstorms over central SE il with highest
pops east of i-55 by overnight Sunday night into Mon morning. Not
as cool Sunday night due to clouds and WAA with lows in the lower
60s northern cwa, mid 60s central sections and upper 60s in
The upper level trof short wave tracks into the lower oh tn river
valley Monday afternoon and should see convection chances
gradually diminish in eastern SE il Mon afternoon. Pops mainly in
the 20-40% range on Mon afternoon, though higher pops early mon|
afternoon along the in border. Highs Mon in the lower 80s and
more humid dewpoints in upper 60s lower 70s with southerly flow.
So a taste of summer returning to the area on Monday.
A fairly strong northern stream short wave trof near the canadian
west coast to dig into the midwest and drive a cold front SE thru
cwa during Mon night, likely bringing a band of showers and some
thunderstorms. SPC day3 outlook as marginal risk of severe storms
far NW CWA and wpc day3 outlook also has marginal risk of
excessive rainfall NW of the il river for Mon night especially mon
evening as precipitable water values reach around 2 inches for a
time ahead of cold front.
Chances of showers and a few thunderstorms lingers in eastern se
il on Tue and diminishing during Tue afternoon as front pushes
away from the area. Decreasing clouds during Tue from NW to se
with a fair amount of sunshine developing during Tue afternoon
with highs around 80f to lower 80s with drier air ushering in
by Tue afternoon.
Dry weather returns to area Tue night into Wed night as weak high
pressure settles into the mo and mid ms river valley. A bit cooler
highs of 75-80f on Wed with upper level trof over the great lakes
and into il and ohio river valley, warmest by lawrenceville.
Stayed close to consensus of models from Thu thru Saturday with
most of this time frame being dry with below normal temps, highs
staying in the mid to upper 70s Thursday thru Saturday. A frontal
boundary pushing SE thru il overnight Thu night into Friday does
not have much moisture to work with but could give slight chances
of showers around that time.

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.
