It took a while, but the Stateline has finally tapped into some warmer air. Here's the recap and look at a major cooldown for the second half of the work week.
Monday was our first 70° day of the year. This is the second latest start to 70° weather in Rockford on record. The average first 70° day of the year for Rockford is April 2nd.
Unfortunately, our next storm system will drop temperatures significantly. Friday is the coldest day on the 7-day forecast, with a high of 55. That's a 32° swing from Tuesday and 13° below our normal high for early May.
