Big Warm Up Coming Soon!

After a very cold and snowy holiday weekend, we'll see a weather 180 by the end of the week.

An upper level ridge builds across the Midwest Thursday into Friday. This allows for southerly flow across the area which will draw up the warmer air.  Temperatures will warm into the upper 30's and low 40's for your Thursday afternoon. Temperatures will continue to rise overnight, after briefly falling. As warmer air continues to be brought into northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin temperatures making it into the mid 50's will be widespread, and its possible to see 60° a little farther southeast. Weak cold front will pass through mid Friday unfortunately so it will be harder for the Stateline to see 60°. Temperatures will then take a dip into the weekend, but it will still be pleasant, with highs forecast to reach to mid 40's for Saturday and right around 40° for Sunday.

With the front on Friday, there is some moisture available, so we could see some lighter rain though most of it will stay a little farther north of us. Temperatures then look to cool a bit more into the start of next week.
