QUINCY (WGEM) - We are still waiting on our cold front to arrive. For now, we are sitting under a warm and muggy/humid airmass. Temperatures will reach into the 80s again. I am expecting the cold front to approach the northwestern tier of the Tri-States by early afternoon. When the front arrives, it will try to produce some rain. However, with some dry air still in place we would just be looking at some very light, scattered rain showers and sprinkles, moving from the northwest to the southeast through the area. Because of how slowly the front will be moving through the Tri-States, a lot of us will stay dry through a good portion of the day. The better chance of rain showers and thunderstorms will hold off until tonight. When the storms develop tonight, they will produce heavy downpours and will be moving very slowly as well. This means that localized flooding and water ponding on the roads will be possible. The scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue into tomorrow morning as well. Closer to the early afternoon hours a lot of the area will see a lull in the action. However, another round of light scattered showers will be possible late in the afternoon and early evening. Then, the rain will gradually come to an end. Tomorrow will be noticeably cooler, with highs only in the 60s.
