PEORIA (25 News Now) - This morning a storm system passing north of the viewing area brought some showers and isolated thunderstorms to those along and north of 74. The clouds associated with this system have been stubborn to exit, so that has helped keep highs and feel-like temps lower than forecast. No complaints for dodging another round of excessive heat.

Rain chances will continue to linger tonight and Monday. As a front approaches this evening, a few isolated showers and storms could develop across the area ahead of the front. No severe threat is expected, but the progression of the front is slow and the atmosphere is very moist. So within any storm that develops, it could produce heavy rain and that can lead to flash flooding. Download the 25 News First Alert Weather app to receive forecast updates and weather alerts.

That threat will also be the case heading into tomorrow. The front looks to arrive Monday morning in the northwestern part of the viewing area. Scattered showers and storms are likely to develop with the arrival of the front, so we’ll keep scattered showers and storms in the forecast late morning into the afternoon Monday. It’s not going to be a washout, but it will be mostly cloudy and muggy with highs in the mid 80s.

We look to dry out Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the low to mid 80s. There’s a slight chance for a cold front to bring some rain in on Thursday, but confidence is low. If this cold front does work through the area, it will help keep temperatures slightly below average for the remainder of the week.
