Cooler temperatures through the start of the weekend are followed by a slight rain chance and a warming trend into the coming week across central Illinois.

Canadian high pressure dropping into the Great Lakes brings a slug of cooler temperatures to mid-Illinois again Saturday. Despite abundant sunshine, daytime highs will be quite chilly and struggle to reach the lower 40s -- that's about 15 degrees colder than normal -- with overnight lows falling back to the 20s.

The extended outlook is generally dry with a warming trend and temperatures back into the 60s for the upcoming week, but there is a slight chance of showers late Sunday as another cold front drops in from the northwest and another rain chance develops by Wednesday.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the low 40s  Saturday; mid 50s Sunday; low 60s Monday; mid- to upper 60s Tuesday and Wednesday; and, low 60s Thursday. Overnight lows will fall to the lower 20s Friday night; upper 20s Saturday night, mid 30s Sunday night ; mid 40s Monday and Tuesday night; and, around 50 Wednesday night.
