914 PM CDT Mon Jun 26 2017

A weak cold front continued dropping south across central and 
southeast Illinois this evening. A few isolated showers with some 
embedded thunderstorms were seen ahead of the front. The 
precipitation had made it to the I-72 corridor by late evening.
Otherwise, skies were clearing behind the frontal passage.  
Temperatures around the area just before sunset were in the 60s.

The showers and thunderstorms will continue moving southeast this
evening, before ending not long after sunset. Overnight and on 
Tuesday, high pressure will be in control, continuing the 
seasonably cool temperatures. A warm front will move into the area
on Wednesday, bringing more seasonal temperatures and more humid 
conditions. A chance of showers and thunderstorms moves in late 
Wednesday when a cold front moves into the area. This front is 
expected to stall across northern Missouri, central Illinois, and 
central Indiana, then be the focus for showers and thunderstorms
late in the week and into the weekend. 

Low temperatures overnight will drop into the 50s across the 
region, with some mid and upper 40s noted across northeast Iowa 
and much of Wisconsin. High temperatures on Tuesday, will top out 
in the mid 70s to low 80s across the Midwest.
