Dry and Near Normal with Rain Chances Late Monday into Tuesday
Rain chances will increase over the next 36-48 hrs for most of us.
QUINCY (WGEM) - We can expect mostly dry conditions under partly to mostly cloudy skies overnight through early Monday morning. Monday will see temperatures running slightly below normal in the upper-70s to lower-80s under continued partly cloudy skies. Patchy fog is possible early Monday morning, especially across the northern tier of the Tri-States so use caution while driving, especially in river valleys and low-lying areas Monday morning. The north-northeasterly flow behind early Sunday morning’s departing cold front will bring more comfortable humidity levels again Monday.
Most of the coming week is expected to see below-normal temperatures with an increasing chance of rain for much of the region. While this is still an evolving forecast with some uncertainty regarding the amount and placement of actual rainfall totals, some areas could see at least a few tenths of an inch (or more) of needed rainfall with a low-pressure system and stalled frontal boundary that passes to our southwest on Tuesday; the greatest risk for any appreciable rainfall totals (1.00″+) at this time appears to be largely along and west of a Pittsfield, IL to Ft. Madison, IA line but an eastward shift in recent model runs has at least the western 2/3 of the Tri-States poised to pick up at least a few tenths of an inch of rain before the system departs by early Wednesday, with the heaviest totals currently expected in our Missouri counties.
Thereafter, slightly cooler than normal temperatures and dry conditions are expected for the remainder of the workweek but a more active precipitation pattern may be in store by next weekend.
