(OLNEY/NEWTON) As that strong cold front moved through downstate Illinois earlier this morning, a post-frontal band of light rain showers is moving across the southern portion of the state and once that clears the state, we’ll eventually see a clearing sky with some sunshine expected for later today. Our downstate rain totals over the past 72 hours ranged from a half inch to over two inches in some spots. A high pressure will build into the Midwest tonight and it will control our weather conditions for the next several days and nights, with a mostly clear sky and cool weather on tap now through Sunday. After a dry weather system brings us some cooler air late Friday night and through Saturday, our next chance of rain moves in the first of next week. Stay tuned for weather updates and monitor a NOAA Weather Alert Radio.
