We say "hello" to September with a few rain chances and a brief warm up of higher heat and humidity this week across central Illinois.

Look for a few showers Tuesday morning for our southern most counties closer to I-70 and gradually clearing skies with seasonable temperatures for the afternoon. A passing shower or thunderstorm will be possible again Wednesday afternoon as a warm front lifts toward northern Illinois. Skies stay clear on Thursday, but temperatures rise to the lower 90's with higher humidity expected.

A cold front slides in Friday with showers and thunderstorms developing by the afternoon and lingering into Friday night. Much cooler weather follows the passage of the front with temperatures only in the 70's over the weekend and into early next week.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the mid- 80's Tuesday; upper 80's Wednesday; lower 90's Thursday; upper 80's Friday; and, mid- to upper 70's Saturday through Monday. Overnight lows will drop to the lower 60's Tuesday night; lower 70's Wednesday and Thursday night; mid- 60's Friday night; and, mid- to upper 50's Saturday and Sunday night.
