Aside from the upcoming weekend, cooler temperatures will be the rule -- not the exception --more often than not the next week or so across central Illinois.

Rain chances develop Friday with a few showers or thunderstorms possible as the first of several disturbances track through the area over the weekend. The weekend outlook offers several chances for mainly hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms through Sunday, although the best chances for widespread rains look to be with the passage of a warm front Friday night and again Saturday evening as a cold front slides through mid-Illinois.

Temperatures and humidity will also be on the rise this weekend with highs back into the mid- to upper 80's. However, the extended forecast features quiet weather into the upcoming week with a quick return to cooler temperatures early next week

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