Central Illinois is going to enjoy a beauty stretch of pleasant weather this week, and an overall warm trend will last through the week.

High pressure keeps our skies clear for a few day, so more sunny weather and temperatures in the upper 60s. And will more sunshine and winds mainly out of the south this week, temperatures gradually warm from the mid-60s to start the week to low 70s on Friday and near 80 this weekend. There is one little hiccup which will be a very weak cold front Wednesday evening. So Thursday's temps hold back a notch, but still no little to no rain is forecasted.

This weekend, with temperatures near 80 degrees, there's also slight chances for thunderstorms. This is because of a zonal (west-to-east) jet stream, little waves of energy, short-waves, will bring these chances into the area. Exact timing is near impossible to determine this far out, but intensity and severe weather shouldn't be an issue.

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