(OLNEY/NEWTON) Our downstate Illinois area rainfall amounts range from 2.50 to 4 inches over the past 72-hour period and as that slow-moving weak cool front continues to push southward into the Ohio River Valley, there is slight chance of wrap-around showers or isolated thunderstorms in our downstate region today, although we’ll mostly have a dry sky with some sunshine and clouds all mixed up. Then we for sure dry up tonight as an upper level ridge sets up over the Midwest tomorrow with a weak surface high pressure settling in to keep us dry and a little bit warmer. A vigorous mid-to-upper level short wave trof out to our west will track into the Central Plains by Monday morning and begin to spread chances of showers and thunderstorms into our downstate region by next Monday night, continuing through Tuesday night. Then a pleasant stretch of dry, cooler, and less humid weather in place for next Wednesday through Friday. Stay tuned for weather updates and monitor a NOAA Weather Alert Radio for alerts and/or warnings.
