Warm and Sunny Weekend with a Cooler Week Ahead

We have an amazing end to the work week here in the stateline, with warm temperatures in the mid to upper 60°s and lots of sunshine! You can't ask for better weather on a Friday, and one of the reasons for it is that we have a low pressure system out east tracking away from us.  This has allowed for air pressure to increase, which helps to keep plenty of clouds out of our area and bring us more sunshine.  That sunshine helped to warm our temperatures near average, but unfortunately we couldn't break that barrier today, although a few places came close with highs at 67°.  As that low tracks east, our wind speeds will die down for the overnight, but that low will also pull some light rain showers near our area around 7am tomorrow morning.  They will skim the eastern part of our viewing area, moving through Boone, McHenry, DeKalb, and the eastern portion of Winnebago county.  However, the heavier rain showers will be pulled eastward, so we'll only see some drizzle.

The drizzle will move out between 9-10am, and after that we have a beautiful weekend to look forward to.  60° temperatures and plenty of sunshine; that's what this weekend has in store for us.  You'll want to make plans for the outdoors because it's going to be great! Another low will move in to start the work week, bringing clouds for Monday and a chance for thunderstorms late Tuesday night.  That low will stall in the plains afterwards, leaving clouds to stall in our area for Wednesday and Thursday, but drier air moves in on Friday to clear the skies and give us more sunshine.  Temperatures will be in the low 60°s for Monday, but once the clouds continue to pour in our temperatures will stay in the upper 50°s for the rest of the week.
