THE STORMY WEATHER PATTERN CONTINUES

SPRINGFIELD (WICS) - Showers and scattered storms have been commonplace over the past couple of days, and central Illinois can expect more of the same. A low pressure system will continue to slowly march its way across the state setting off more scattered showers and storms this evening into Friday. The chance for severe storms is very low, but a few storms could be on the stronger side packing wind gusts around 50 mph and torrential downpours which could snap some tree limbs and toss loose lawn furniture around if it's not properly secured. Rainfall totals over the next couple of days could easily be in excess of two inches.

Although more periods of scattered showers and storms are likely through Friday, the weekend features a drier air mass trying to move in as the low pressure system slides to the east. Expect a mix of sun and clouds for Saturday and Sunday, although there is still a slight chance for a stray shower or isolated storm over the weekend.

Temperatures will be cooler than it's been due to the extensive cloud cover and continued rain chances. Afternoon highs on Friday will only top out in the upper 70s and low 80s, and generally highs in the low 80s will be the rule through the weekend. By midweek, though, another hot spell settles in with highs rebounding back into the upper 80s and low 90s.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the low 80s Thursday; upper 70s Friday; low to mid 80s Saturday through Tuesday; and upper 80s Wednesday. Overnight lows will fall to the low to mid 60s Thursday through Sunday night; upper 60s Monday night; and low 70s Tuesday night.

FOR EAST CENTRAL ILLINOIS

MORE RAIN/STORMS THOUGH LATE FRIDAY

Champaign (WCCU)- A large incoming weather system will continue to bring mid-Illinois rain/storms for the first days of Summer, before finally moving to the east late Friday night. Rainfall totals could be in the 1.5 to 2.5-inch range on top of what has falling already this week. Highs for both days will be in the upper 70s with lows in the mid 60s.

The major threat from these storms will be strong gusty thunderstorm winds along with locally heavy rainfall and possible hail. We'll be under a marginal threat of strong to severe storms through Friday.
