Drier Weather On the Way

We had a nice start to the weekend with the sunshine and the temperatures in the mid 70°s, but now we've got some rain moving in from the west, currently going through Jo Daviess County.  There were a few thunderstorms embedded in the rain earlier as the rain made its approach, but those storms are dying down.  However, we can't rule out a few rumbles thunder for Jo Daviess while those storms die down.  The rain is tracking northeast, but as it tracks northeast a few showers could skim our counties along the Wisconsin-Illinois border. 

The rain will move out between 9-10pm and we'll get a break from it during the overnight, before more rain moves in around 4am.  The rain will start in from the west, with Jo Daviess, Carroll, and Whiteside counties seeing it first.  Afterwards, it'll filter its way east into our other counties between 4-7am.  A few thunderstorms are possible in Whiteside, Lee, and the southern portions of Dekalb as an upper-level trough will move in tomorrow morning.  The dip in that trough will move in over central Illinois, which is where the instability will be highest.  However, there will be just enough instability in our southern counties to allow for some thunderstorm development. 

All the other counties will see rain, with everything moving out around 4pm when the front moves out.  After the front moves out, we'll see clearing skies for the evening with temperatures staying in the low 70°s.  We hang on to these nice condition for Memorial Day, as well as for the rest of the week.
