QUINCY (WGEM) - A very large area of high pressure continues to hover over the Great Lakes and southern Canada. Therefore, we have a day of abundant sunshine yet again. Daytime highs will be slightly above normal for this time of year, but very pleasant in the mid 70s. Winds will be light and out of the east. Into tonight, we will have mostly clear skies with lows in the low to mid 40s.

The blocking pattern that has been keeping us sunny and dry will start to break down today. This will allow a trough to head eastward towards us, but it is not expected to arrive here in the Tri-States until Wednesday.

Before that trough arrives, Tuesday will be another sunny day with highs in the mid 70s. Then on Wednesday, the trough will bring in a bit more clouds. So the day will be partly cloudy to partly sunny. Due to the weak nature of the trough and limited moisture available, the forecast remains dry.
