Periods of rain this week...
Several weather disturbances will move across the Plains and Midwest this week, resulting in periods of showers and thunderstorms through Friday.
There is a slight risk for severe thunderstorms late Monday night over the western parts of central Illinois, with large hail and strong winds the main threats.
Isolated severe storms will also be possible over southeastern Illinois Tuesday evening, and area-wide Wednesday night as well as Thursday afternoon and evening.
At this time, it appears that the upcoming weekend should be mainly dry.
