One more warm and humid day is expected over east central Illinois and west central Indiana as highs reach into the low to mid 80's. Some sunshine returns for parts of the area during the morning and early afternoon hours but other areas remain under mostly cloudy skies.
Showers and isolated thunderstorms have diminished this morning from overnights activity but is set to refire late this afternoon and evening, lasting into the overnight.
--STORM TEAM 15 FORECAST--
An unsettled weather pattern is in store for the area through mid week as an upper level low slowly works eastward into the Greats Lakes dragging an associated cold front through the Midwest. A very unstable spring air mass over Illinois/Indiana will allow for the development of severe storms ahead of the cold front once again today. As the system pushes further east and weakens today, not quite as unstable of an air mass is expected resulting in less coverage of severe storms. Rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches will be possible through Wednesday as the storm works away.
A slight risk of strong to severe storms developing again into Tuesday night. The entire ABC/NewsChannel 15 viewing area is included in the risk area with the main threats being strong winds and large hail. Isolated tornadoes though cannot be ruled out.

The passing cold front will usher in cooler air by mid week as daytime highs fall back into the 60's and 70's. Dry weather finally returns for the end of the week and first half of the weekend as high pressure settles into the Great Lakes region.
--6 TO 10 DAY FORECAST--
May 26-30: Temperature readings could be above average while precipitation totals look to fall below average.
