Central Illinois can expect a nice stretch of quiet and dry weather to finish out the work week before more rain chances return over the weekend.

The unseasonably cool temperatures of the past couple of weeks will gradually warm the next few days as high pressure dominates with clear skies, abundant sunshine and afternoon highs reaching the upper 70's by Friday.

Afternoon highs hit the lower 80's Saturday before a cold front slides into mid-Illinois with chances of showers and thunderstorms developing by late Saturday afternoon and evening. While some of our eastern and southeastern counties could see some lingering showers through the first half of the day on Sunday, the rest of the area should start to dry out with a return to quiet weather with partly to mostly sunny skies and slightly cooler than normal temperatures into early next week.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs in the lower 70's Thursday; upper 70's Friday; lower 80's Saturday; upper 70's Sunday; mid- 70's Monday; and, lower 70's Tuesday. Overnight lows will drop around 50 Wednesday and Thursday night; lower 60's Friday and Saturday night; mid- 50's Sunday night; and, upper 40's Monday night.
