Mild and Pleasant Weather Ahead

 After a soggy Wednesday for the Stateline, we switch gears as we head into the next seven days. High pressure in the mid levels of the atmosphere will track into southern Illinois, this will move the placement of the jet stream north of the area. As the jet moves north and settles near the northern Great Lakes, it takes the moisture with it as well, keeping northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin pretty dry going forward. With a lack of moisture we keep skies mostly sunny and temperatures in the 60's going into next week. The next chance for rain arrives late Monday and early Tuesday, however the chance for rain is pretty slim at this point. Models have really backed off on that rain chance next week, with minimal forcing in the atmosphere. So if you are planning to go vote on Election Day on Tuesday, there could be a few light morning showers, but overall the weather shouldn't be an issue if you plan to head out and cast your vote!
