Cooler temperatures will be the rule -- not the exception --more often than not the next week or so across central Illinois.

Cooler and less humid weather has returned on the strength of high pressure building in from the northern plains. The Canadian high will keep skies clear for abundant sunshine Thursday with temperatures running about 10 degrees below normal.

Rain chances develop Friday with a few showers or thunderstorms possible as the first of several disturbances track through the area over the weekend. The weekend outlook offers several chances for mainly hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms through Sunday, although the best chances for widespread rains look to be with the passage of a warm front Friday night and again Saturday evening as a cold front slides through mid-Illinois.

Temperatures and humidity will also be on the rise this weekend with highs back into the mid- to upper 80's. However, the extended forecast features quiet weather into the upcoming week with a quick return to cooler temperatures early next week

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the upper 70's Thursday; lower 80's Friday; upper 80's Saturday and Sunday; mid- to upper 70's Monday and Tuesday; and, around 80 Wednesday. Overnight lows will drop to the upper 50's Thursday night; near 70 Friday and Saturday night; lower 60's Sunday night; and, upper 50's Monday and Tuesday night.
