The stalled out frontal boundary responsible for the periods of showers and thunderstorms will continue to impact the weather around the Sauk Valley today and beyond. Some locally heavy rainfall is still possible with any of the storms around the area today.
Looking at rainfall totals from the last 12 hours (6pm Monday through 6am today) you can see a good swath of widespread amounts over an inch.
Leftover showers this morning will give way to mostly cloudy conditions for the remainder of the morning. This afternoon a few peaks of sunshine will be possible along with the chance for more scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially towards the evening hours. Highs today are expected to be in the lower 70s.
Tonight the front attempts to move to the north of the area, but continued chances for showers and thunderstorms will still be around. Lows around 59.
Wednesday the front finally moves to the north of the area and temperatures get quite a boost with windy conditions. There may be a few leftover showers and storms in the morning, but by the afternoon hours a few peaks of sunshine will be likely with highs near 80 degrees.
Daily chances for showers and storms continue through the rest of the week. It doesn’t look like we’ll get a break until early next week when a cold front finally moves through the area.
