Rain chances more often than not and gradually cooler temperatures highlight the 7-day forecast for central Illinois.

Some sunshine and mild temperatures to start the day out Thursday. However, clouds and gusty winds will be increasing into the afternoon ahead of cold front pushing into the area by late afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms are expected by late afternoon and will continue into the evening. While the threat of severe storms will be focused farther south into southern Illinois and the lower Mississippi valley, some of our stronger storms could still pack a bit of a punch of gusty winds and heavy rains. By the time any lingering rain comes to an end late early Friday morning, most locations around central Illinois are likely to pick up between a half inch to 3/4" of total rainfall.

Friday and Saturday bring warm temperatures and sunny skies for a nice start to the weekend. However, our next chance for showers returns Saturday night with periods of showers and isolated thunderstorms settling in for the remainder of the weekend and through Wednesday. Additionally, temperatures will slowly tumble from highs in the lower 70's Sunday to highs only in the lower 50's Wednesday.

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