(OLNEY/NEWTON) An approaching cold front is bringing rain to Illinois as we speak, anywhere from 2 to 3 inches fell overnight in the northwestern portions of the state and as the front moves through our neck of the woods later this afternoon, we’ll see showers and possibly a thunderstorm or two. Behind the front is dry and cooler air with a high pressure building into the Upper Midwest by tomorrow night giving us a dry sky Thursday through Friday night. Then our next chance of scattered rain returns with an upper level trof that will move through our downstate region Saturday afternoon into Sunday and Labor Day. Also look for more heat and humidity to return for the holiday weekend as well, not as hot as the past few days, but warmer than normal for the first weekend of September. Stay tuned for continued weather updates and monitor a NOAA Weather Alert Radio for weather information and possible weather alerts or warnings.
