Nice start to the weekend, then rainy

We’ve got a beautiful start to the weekend, but rain will return for the second half of the weekend.

Friday night: 
Clear skies and light winds help drop overnight lows below freezing. Lows in the upper 20s with quiet conditions. Winds: light/variable.

Another beautiful day for central Illinois. Highs in the middle 50s with mostly sunny skies turning mostly cloudy late. Winds shift to the SSE around 5-10 mph.

Saturday night into Sunday: 
Lows drop into the lower 40s with mostly cloudy skies and showers moving in. Rain likely after midnight into early Sunday morning.

On/off showers likely through Sunday evening. Best chance appears to be early Sunday morning and late afternoon into evening. Rain totals could be between a quarter and half-inch. Highs in the middle 50s with winds around 5-15 mph.

Don’t forget, folks in far northern parts of the state may be able to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights Friday and Saturday night due to a geomagnetic storm. Here is a map of where folks might be able to see the phenomenon.
