Above Average Temperatures Continue

Southerly flow continues over the area as we begin the new workweek. Temperatures today will head for the lower 60s under a mostly sunny sky. A cold front approaches the area tonight, however, with limited moisture no precipitation is expected. What we will see though is a dramatic increase in cloud cover for Tuesday with highs in the 50s.

Step outside and enjoy the warmth while its here!

Andrew Stutzke was born and raised in beautiful Sterling, Illinois. As a young child, he was continually fascinated by the weather, especially thunderstorms. Often times he could be found glued to the television watching The Weather Channel. Upon entering high school it was clear what his area of study would be once he started college. After graduating from Sterling High School in 2004, he attended Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon, Illinois where he received his Associate of Science degree in 2010. In 2016 he received his B.S. in Meteorology from Northern Illinois University.

Andrew is currently the Friday and Saturday evening meteorologist at WIFR-TV in Rockford, IL.

In his spare time, Andrew enjoys listening to the latest Alt-Rock and Indie music, storm spotting, walking the many paths around the area, and spending time with family.
