The Next 4 Days...

Short Term: Over the past several days, numerical model guidance has done a good job with the handling of this incoming weather system, showing rain moving into the Midwest and northern Illinois late tonight and that continues to be the case. The afternoon and evening hours will remain quiet but areas of rain will gradually develop later tonight and tonight to the west and southwest and eventually move into the area during the late evening hours, overspreading more of the area near or a bit after midnight. It will not be a continuous rain but periods of rain will continue through the overnight hours and into the morning as well, likely making for a slower and wet morning commute. We will then see our warmest temperatures tomorrow in nearly two weeks with highs sneaking into the mid 50's for a time ahead of the eastward moving cold front. This will be short lived though with cold air commencing tomorrow night and highs back to below normal and in the upper 30's on Friday.

Beyond 4 Days...

Long Term: Heading into the upcoming weekend, some guidance continues to try to meander an upper level low into portions of the Midwest early Saturday with an area of rain and potentially snow but this looks to remain south of our area. Broad high pressure will then be the norm across the region on Sunday and Monday with continued below normal temperatures with daytime highs in the upper 30's and low 40's. By the middle of next week or really by Tuesday, model guidance continues to develop a trough out west in some fashion that leads to a strong system across the plains. It will still be several days until guidance gets a better grasp on this system but there is a growing consensus for a significant storm system from the plains into portions of the Midwest before Thanksgiving.
