Some much needed rain will bring a welcomed break from the summertime heat and humidity to central Illinois.

NOAA's Storm Prediction Center includes central Illinois on the southern fringe of a "Slight Risk" for severe weather late Tuesday night. A few scattered showers and thunderstorms will be likely overnight Tuesday night through late Wednesday morning with the potential for isolated damaging winds and large hail as a cold front slides through mid-Illinois. The latest computer models indicate we could receive a decent soaking with between a quarter and half inch of rain possible.

Cooler and less humid weather quickly returns behind the departing front with highs only in the upper 70's by Thursday. The extended forecast offers more chances for rain Friday night through Saturday night with near normal temperatures over the weekend.

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