QUINCY (WGEM) - So far today, portions of the Tri-States have been getting some showers and thunderstorms. They have not been widespread though. These showers developed out ahead of our approaching fall cold front. There has been enough moisture to bring an area of showers and storms to mainly the northern tier. With some heavy repeated downpours, localized flash flooding will be possible in that area.

The cold front has now cleared the northern tier and is now slowly moving southward through the rest of the Tri-States. Through the day, we will have more scattered showers and thunderstorms move into the area. With the rain being scattered, not everyone will see rain.

Daytime highs today will depend on the timing of the cold front. Since the northern tier will see the front first, you will see highs in the 70s. The rest of the Tri-States will see highs in the low to mid 80s, as they will have a bit more time to warm. Once the front comes through, we will start to notice cooler air spilling into the area. This will start to happen late this afternoon and evening. Tonight will be mostly cloudy. We will see a strong drop in temperatures as we will fall into the 50s. That is about 20 degrees cooler than last night.
