(OLNEY/NEWTON) With the strong upper level ridge still hanging over Illinois combined with the slow progression of Hurricane Florence moving inland, our Midwestern weather pattern is pretty much blocked from making any changes, at least for now. The frontal boundary nearly stationary to our northwest, from northern Wisconsin to northern Nebraska, will not move much at all until the remnants of Florence move further inland into eastern Kentucky and western Ohio before turning towards the New England states. This will eventually allow a cold front to move into Illinois and slowly progress into our downstate region by Thursday night or Friday of next week. But, until then plenty of sunshine and some abnormal humidity and heat this weekend through midweek, next week. Stay tuned to a NOAA Weather Alert Radio for updates.
