A weather disturbance approaching the area today brings an increasing chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Best timing for the showers and storms look to be between 5pm and 9pm, with most of rain shifting east of the Illinois/Indiana bounder by dawn Friday.


A storm system in the Plains slowly moves eastward into the upper Midwest today. As the main low lifts toward the Great Lakes region it will swing a cold front through central Illinois and Indiana bringing chances of rain during the afternoon and evening. There could be thunderstorms with the arrival of this weather system as well, as highs approach 70-degrees this afternoon.

The best chance of thunderstorms will be across the southern third of the abc/NewsChannel 15 viewing area.  So far, it appears that there is little to no threat of any strong to severe thunderstorms for Thursday.

We'll end the work/school week on a good note once again which will take us into the day on Saturday, but with much cooler conditions.  A cold front will pass across the region late Friday night to usher in much cooler air for Saturday.  No precipitation is expected late Friday, although a sprinkle or two would not be out of the question.

Friday's highs will be in the lower 70s, but highs on Saturday will be in the lower 60s.  Expect more rain showers and possible thunderstorms by Sunday afternoon/evening, but so far the weather models are not certain on the timing the possibility of any thunderstorms.  Stay tuned to the STORM TEAM at abc/NewsChannel 15 for the latest weather information.
