The heavy rainfall from Tuesday morning and afternoon has come to an end with only a few light showers and sprinkles remaining Tuesday evening. Under mostly cloudy skies temperatures will remain in the low 60's during the overnight. Unfortunately highs didn't warm as much as hoped, staying in the upper 60's and low 70's Tuesday afternoon.
While most of the night will remain dry, showers and thunderstorms will move back in Wednesday with the arrival of an upper level disturbance. Rain and thunderstorms should increase in coverage through late morning and early afternoon Wednesday.
Rainfall totals Tuesday ranged anywhere from a quarter of an inch, all the way to an inch in some spots. Additional rainfall Wednesday and Thursday may bring another one to two inches for northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin, with higher amounts to the northwest in Iowa and Minnesota.
