The outlook for the 4th of July weekend continues to improve with lessening rain chances and more sunshine!

A few scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms late Wednesday afternoon and evening rumbled across parts of mid-Illinois with some locally heavy downpours that lead to flood advisories for Greene and Macoupin counties and a flash flood warning for a good portion of Effingham county through early Thursday morning.

With the cold front stalling out just to the south, the better rain chances for the remainder of the work week and into the holiday weekend will be focused across the southern third of Illinois. Other than some isolated showers on Thursday, look for partly to mostly sunny skies through the weekend with gradually warming temperatures.

The outlook for the upcoming week has another cold front sliding through with chances for showers and thunderstorms starting Monday afternoon. The best rain chances are likely Monday night and Tuesday with lingering showers possible on Wednesday. 

7-DAY TEMPERATURE FORECAST: Look for highs in the upper 70s Thursday and Friday; low to mid- 80s Saturday through Monday; upper 70s Tuesday; and, low 80s Wednesday. Overnight lows will fall to the lower 60s Thursday night; and, mid- to upper 60s Friday through Tuesday night.
