Patchy dense fog to start the work week
PEORIA (25News Now) - Our forecast will trend mostly dry through the work week after a weekend featuring on-and-off rain and storms. The start of the fall season is right around the corner, but summer will look to hold on for the last few days with some warmer temperatures on the way this week. Unsettled weather will look to return into next weekend.
Monday: Visibilities continue to fall early this Monday morning as patchy dense fog returns. Similar to Sunday, the fog has been able to form due to added moisture from recent rainfall along with clear skies, making conditions ideal for fog. Visibilities below half a mile are possible during the morning commute. You should give yourself a few extra minutes as you head out the door this morning due to the reduced visibility. Give yourself plenty of following distance to the car ahead and take it easy.
Fog will gradually lift through the mid morning as the sun rises over the horizon. It may appear cloudy for an hour or two after sunrise as the fog deteriorates, but you’ll want the sunglasses afterwards. Mostly sunny to sunny skies can be expected for much of the day as high pressure drives the forecast. Temperatures will remain cool despite the sunshine with highs trending in the mid to lower 70′s. This will put us a few degrees shy of our seasonal averages.
Rest of the week: Clouds will build early Tuesday morning as a warm front lifts north. This warm front help drive rain chances into Central Illinois into the region through Tuesday morning. The best chance for rain will trend along and to the north of I-74 through the morning before dry conditions arrive for the second half of the day. Behind the warm front, south-southwesterly winds will begin to drive warmer air into the region. This will help drive temperatures into the 80′s through the remainder of the work week.
Our forecast will remain quiet through Friday before unsettled weather looks to return with storm chances during the weekend’s forecast into early next week. Make sure to tune in this morning for the full 10 Day First Alert Forecast!
