Cold, frost, warmth, sun and rain all expected this week
CHAMPAIGN — A frost advisory will be in effect between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. Monday morning as the National Weather Service warns that sensitive plants may be damaged or killed if left uncovered.
Forecasters are expecting a low temperature of 35 degrees overnight Sunday into Monday. But those longing for warmer temperatures may find solace quickly.
Monday afternoon will bring high temperatures in the mid-60s, and the warmup gets even more pronounced on Tuesday, when forecasters expect temperatures in the mid-80s.
That warm trend is expected to continue through next weekend, with afternoon high temperatures hovering in the high-70s and low-80s. Overnight lows are predicted to be in the 60s through next Sunday.
The sun will not last, however, after Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday afternoon brings the first chance for a thunderstorm, according to the National Weather Service, and the rain is expected to continue periodically through next Sunday.
