Almanac

SATURDAY, AUGUST 1, 2015

NORMAL HIGH:
86
NORMAL LOW: 65

RECORD HIGH: 101 (2012)
RECORD LOW: 48 (1971)

SUNRISE:
5:56 a.m.
SUNSET:
8:13 p.m.

Generally a dry outlook for a majority of the first few days of August, but we can't rule out some stray showers or thunderstorms across mid-Illinois. 

Finishing out the weekend, temperatures will top out 90 degrees under partly to mostly sunny skies on Sunday...and we do have a chance for a storm Sunday morning. Humidity will be tolerable with dew points in the mid to upper 60s on Sunday. But there will be some minor storms chances, thanks to a semi-permanent low pressure spinning over Hudson Bay. Overcast skies and showers are persistent near the center of this system. Illinois is on the far edge, so it's influence will be limited. Some waves of energy will be possible periodically through the first week of August.

The current thoughts as to the best timing for these waves would be Sunday morning. Additional chances are possible Sunday night and again Tuesday night, again on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. None of these chances are very high -- Tuesday looks to be the best chance at 40% -- but hit-or-miss rain chances nonetheless throughout the coming week.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK:   Look for highs around 90 Sunday and Monday; mid 80s Tuesday; and, low 80s Wednesday though Friday. Overnight lows will fall to the upper 60s Saturday thought Monday night; and mid 60s Tuesday though Thursday night.
