Frosty start in the central & east (with some dense fog in the southeast & east) ended as a 68-76 day!

The big green blob in Warren County is the ol' malfunctioning Danville-Vermilion County Airport weather station.  It stopped working after hitting 51 degrees this morning.  The contour data interpolates that as the high for the day, resulting in the anomalous "cold" blob in the data down that way.

Lows tonight will run 40-51 with some increasing high & mid clouds.

Highs Monday will run 75-80 with a mix of clouds & sun.  At times it will be mostly sunny, then it may turn partly cloudy to mostly cloudy for a bit, before we go back to mostly sunny & on & on this will go through the day.  So, the sun will be very dimmed & very faded at times, but bright & brilliant at other times.

Lows tomorrow night will run at 58-64.

Cold front will pass Tuesday with highs 60-70 (with south-southwest winds 15-30 mph initially).  Temperatures will fall into the 50s to aroudn 60 for the entire area by late afternoon-evening with strong north to north-northwest winds.  This will drive lake breeze front through, only enhancing the cooler air, which will be blowing over still cold Lake Michigan water.

A few spotty showers are possible in the morning & a few spotty storms could pop along the front in the south near midday before the front exits.

Low clouds will follow with the cooler air & that wind shift.

Rainfall coverage will only run around 30%.

Clearing skies & cold shot (with winds going calm) will drop us to 36-41 for lows Tuesday night. A few patches of frost are possible.

Wednesday will recover to 64-69 with mostly sunny skies & a light wind.

Thursday may have a few showers around, mainly in the south with sun north & clouds south wtih 66-73 south to north. 

Friday & Saturday currently looks good with 68-74 Friday & 73-79 Saturday.

Some t'storms are possible late Sunday with 77-81.

Showers & t'storms are possible late Monday-Tuesday morning of next week & then again late Wednesday-Thursday.

It will be windy & rather humid with some potential at least isolated severe risk with warm high temperatures at 77-82. 

Not big, widespread rainfall looks to occur until perhaps Friday of next week.

Farmers, many of you will be planting corn by next weekend & then into next week as soils dry & warm.
