Cooler Temperatures to Return
As it does so, it will swing a cold front through Illinois and Wisconsin Tuesday evening. Along this frontal boundary exists the chance for showers and thunderstorms. Models do disagree slightly regarding how much rain will develop along the front, and how far south the rain will go. As a result, it is not impossible that the rain stays mainly north of Rockford, but at this time it appears as though at least some rain and thunderstorms will affect the region Tuesday into Tuesday night. This means any voters who venture out during the afternoon and evening could be met with rain.
There are two other aspects to this system. First, winds will pick up significantly Tuesday and Wednesday as the low sits to our north and deepens. Secondly, as is true with most cold fronts, cooler air will filter in beginning on Wednesday as highs are expected to drop into the middle 50's.
