The Weather Front On-Line
An early Summer-like, yet somewhat unsettled weather pattern will continue for east-central Illinois into the beginning of next week.
Expect day-to-day mainly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms on a widely scattered basis, although some development is possible earlier in the day, as well.
In the wake of yesterday’s outbreaks of showers and thunderstorms, weak high pressure takes hold today. A dry day is expected, with temperatures at early Summer-like levels on this first day of June, the start of meteorological summer.
Cool weather will persist through week’s end in the West Coast States, but temperatures will rebound to above-normal levels by early next week. Meanwhile, a warm weather pattern across the Plains and much of the Midwest will be replaced by slightly cooler conditions.
Across the Corn Belt, scattered showers and thunderstorms are grazing the far western areas of the region. Across the remainder of the Midwest, very warm, mostly dry weather favors planting activities and corn and soybean emergence and development.
