Chilly Temperatures Return

Fog will not be an issue this morning however clouds will continue to hang around for much of the day as another cool air mass settles into the region. These clouds and a northerly breeze will keep temperatures down today in the lower 40s for highs.

The remainder of the week will feature increasing amounts of sunshine each day however, temperatures will not do much increasing at all as highs will remain tied to the 40s for the remainder of the week. Our next chance for measurable precipitation won’t arrive until next weekend.

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.
