Sunshine and unseasonably warm temperatures are coming back -- just in time for the weekend!

After a cloudy start with some patchy dense fog around central Illinois Friday morning, the sky gradually clears into Friday afternoon for sunshine and warmer temperatures topping out at around 70 degrees. Week 9 -- the final week of the regular season for high school football -- kicks off Friday night around mid- Illinois with nearly clear skies and mild game time temperatures in the mid- to upper 50's.

A weak cold front slides through the area rain free early Saturday morning with little more than a few clouds and a shift to northwesterly winds. Cooler air lags well behind the front and will help drop nighttime temperatures into the 40's. Otherwise, full days of sunshine both Saturday and Sunday afternoon overcome the effects of northwesterly winds and surge of cooler air to boost daytime temperatures well into the 70's each day.

Temperatures stay rather warm Monday with afternoon highs approaching 80 degrees before a stronger cold front brings rain chances late Monday night into early Tuesday morning. If the front slows down and arrives later in the day Tuesday, there will be the potential of some isolated thunderstorms developing along the front as it pushes into a warm and humid air mass. Cooler temperatures return by mid-week across central Illinois with additional rain chances late week.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the around 70 Friday; mid- 70's Saturday and Sunday; near 80 Monday; and, lower to mid- 60's Tuesday through Thursday. Overnight lows will drop to the mid- 50's Friday night; upper 40's Saturday night; near 60 Sunday and Monday night; and, mid- 40's Tuesday and Wednesday night.
