Wet Week Ahead…But That’s a Good Thing!

The pattern looks like it will finally shift in our favor in terms of some much needed rainfall for the area as this week will present quite a few opportunities for showers and thunderstorms with nearly daily chances through the day Friday. We’ve been talking about our rainfall deficit over the last couple of weeks, […]

Nice Holiday Weekend Ahead

A very pleasant weekend is in store for the upcoming Easter holiday, as long as you don’t mind some wind with the warmer temperatures. Saturday will feature plenty of sunshine, and wind too! Highs will reach the lower 60s with a gusty southwest breeze. Easter Sunday will be even warmer with continued sunshine and gusty […]

AM Showers Today; Cooler Friday

Liquid gold is finally falling from the sky, and not the Mac N Cheese kind either! 🙂 While one rain band has already moved through the area this morning, the latest radar image shows a secondary lighter band may move through later this morning providing perhaps another five hundredths of an inch of precipitation. Some […]

A Tad Cooler Today; Big Warm Up Wednesday

A weak cold front slipped through the area last night which will trim a degree or two off today’s high temperatures, still pleasant though for late March. Expect full sunshine to continue into the afternoon hours with highs in the middle 60s. Tonight skies will remain clear to partly cloudy with lows around 39. For […]

Finally! A Mild Pattern!

I couldn’t help but smile as I put tonight’s package together. Finally we have several days with mild temperatures on the way this week! So far this season, we usually squeeze out maybe one or two spectacular warm and sunny days until another front moves through and jolts us back to winter-like temperatures. This week […]

Cooler Temperatures Hang Around

The sunshine may be back but the strong winds will continue as we head through your Thursday making it feel much cooler. Expect highs to be around 40 degrees with gusty northwest winds around 15-20 MPH. For Friday sunny skies will continue and even cooler conditions expected with highs only in the upper 30s. The […]

March Madness Continues

Quite a shock to the system with the brief period of heavy snow yesterday that was just enough to put a fresh new coating on the ground. It is a grim reminder that March and even the upcoming month of April can and usually do have quite a variety of weather associated with them. We […]

Messy Monday Ahead

Say it ins’t…snow? Unfortunately yes, that’s just what we will see for Monday. Winter Weather Advisories and even Winter Storm Warnings have already been posted just to our north. At this time, the heaviest snow looks like it will narrowly miss the area just to the north, with only a dusting to perhaps an inch […]

Warm today, cooler Sunday. Rain chances increasing.

Another beautiful weekend on tap across the Sauk Valley with ample sunshine expected today as you can see via the visible satellite image. Not many clouds around the area! Highs will reach into the middle 50s with light winds. Tonight clouds will be on the increase late as our next storm system approaches, lows right […]

Few Showers Thursday

Good Thursday everyone! Clouds will rule the skies today along with a few stray showers as we are between two weather systems. Temperatures will rise to around 50 degrees. Not expecting anything heavy in terms of precipitation amounts, just enough to wet the pavement possibly in a few spots. Friday we return to full sunshine […]

TGIF! Fantastic Weekend Weather Ahead!

Happy Friday! Sunshine will continue to rule the skies through today and even the entire upcoming weekend. Conditions look perfect for any kind of outdoor activity (minus swimming of course =D ) through Monday as temperatures climb into the 60s. Saturday will be a tad cooler with the passage of a cold front, but come […]

Sunny & Warm To Finish Off The Week

Another beautiful day on tap for the Sauk Valley as sunshine prevails and temperatures warm into the upper 50s this afternoon. Clouds will be on the increase ahead of the next disturbance which will slide to the south of the area over the first part of the weekend, but temperatures will still remain mild. Our […]

Sunshine Returns

Some patchy fog may linger through the early morning hours otherwise full sunshine is expected this afternoon with pleasant temperatures. Thursday will feature even more sunshine and warmer conditions with temperatures approaching 60 degrees with light winds. Have a great day!

Boring Weather Week Ahead…But

Things are looking very quiet around our area weather-wise this week, which can be quite boring to weather enthusiasts such as myself, however it’s not a bad thing! Our warming trend will continue through the new week with temperatures actually surging above average for once! This time of year our average high temperature sits right […]

It’s Been How Long?

When was the last time we saw 50 degrees in the Sauk Valley? A quick parsing of the records shows that all the way back in December was the last time we surpassed the 50 degree mark. After the bitter cold February we just experienced I’m sure many also feel it has been quite some […]
