Break out the hoodies
QUINCY (WGEM) - Temperatures climb to a very summer-like mid-90s across the region Tuesday. Heat index values were in the upper 90s for most of the afternoon. A major swing in temperatures is headed for the region. It will take a couple of days before the temperatures reach their lowest levels.
A cold front will swing through the area beginning Wednesday. This cold front is moving rather slowly. Many times when we have a cold front that has a major swing in temperatures we see an outbreak of severe weather. This is not the case with this type of cold front. The cold front will stall out just to the south of the region and become a stationary front Wednesday night. There’s a limited potential for some scattered showers Wednesday and Thursday and possibly a rumble of thunder. Friday another limited potential for some scattered showers does exist.
But the main story here is the temperatures cooling down by more than 30 degrees.
