A disturbance dropping into the area today brings our next chance for rainfall. Clouds will be on the increase throughout the day with the potential for showers best this afternoon and evening. Temperatures remain slightly cooler than normal for late October, reaching into the mid 50s today.


A clipper like weather system will swoop into the mid Mississippi River Valley today bringing a build up of cloud cover during the day along with chances of light rain showers or sprinkles this evening and possibly overnight. The associated strong cold front will follow, sweeping across Illinois overnight. Blustery north to northwest winds behind this front will usher in the coldest air of the season with highs mostly in the 40s Friday through Sunday.

Trick-or-treaters will need to layer up under the costumes Friday evening as temperatures fall into the the upper 30s. Windy conditions may even produce wind chill values below freezing, maybe even into the 20s, during trick-or-treat and with a little moisture available you may see a few flurries fly.

Temperatures plummet overnight Friday night and again overnight Saturday night with low falling to between 25 and 30 degrees. A widespread freeze is expected during both nights bringing an end to the growing season.

The rest of the weekend appears to be fair, but cool as highs will only reach into the mid 40s on both Saturday and Sunday.  Lows will fall into the 20s once again early Sunday before a more moderate air mass begins to take temperatures back into more typical readings. 

Also, we'll see another weather system move in early next week to bring chances of rain showers on Monday and Tuesday.  Highs for those two days will return to the low 60s on Monday and fall to the low 50s on Tuesday.
