(OLNEY/NEWTON) The nearly stationary frontal boundary draped across North-Central Illinois continues to give us warm conditions and strong south winds as we remain on the south side of that boundary. However, as the boundary moves further north and the cold front out in Kansas moves in our direction, our rain chances go up from “slight” to “likely” today through tonight. In fact the initial band of showers and possible storms will move through our area after midnight and through early Saturday morning. Then after a dry period, more rain and storms will likely develop tomorrow afternoon with some severe weather possible. Once the front passes, much cooler conditions will filter in with some lingering showers through Sunday night. Then we’re dry for the first half of next week. Stay tuned to a NOAA Weather Alert Radio for weather updates.
