Some much needed rain is possible south of I-74 today.
Today: A small-scale system moves by, bringing some scattered showers and storms, mainly south of the Peoria/Bloomington metro areas. The rain and the clouds will keep that system in check. Highs only reach the low-mid 80s.
Futurecast: This is the first of a couple disturbances that bring a couple showers and storms. Rain is much needed...areas south of I-74 could see an inch or more of that rain. Expect even less northward.
Comfort Cast: Overall, it'll still be oppressive in nature most of this week. As we approach the weekend, it'll be a little drier, but still hot.
7-Day: The 4th of July weekend, will be hot, but it should be dry.
