It was another heavy rain event Monday for many locations around mid-Illinois with almost an inch of rain in Springfield and nearly 2 inches in Jacksonville. Thunderstorms made a lot of noise, too but rain chances quickly diminished into the evening. With the abundant moisture left behind, coupled with light winds and the expectation of clearing skies overnight, patchy fog may develop by early Tuesday morning.

Skies clear for abundant sunshine Tuesday and dry, quiet conditions prevail for the remainder of the work week with slowly warming temperatures into the upper70's by Friday.

Afternoon highs hit to around 80 degrees Saturday before a cold front slides into mid-Illinois with chances of showers and thunderstorms developing late Saturday afternoon and evening. Quiet weather is expected to return by Sunday with partly to mostly sunny skies and slightly cooler than normal temperatures into early next week.

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