Sunday still looks dry & windy with south to southwest gusts as high as 37 mph. Clouds will be on the increase, especially later in the day with highs of 65-71.
Severe threat tomorrow night may get as close as far western Illinois, but I am not concerned with our area getting severe storms.
T’Storms are likely for a while Sunday night, followed by a cold rain with rapidly falling temperatures early Monday morning. The rain may end by midday Monday, but temperatures will be chilly! Temperatures will be around 40 in the afternoon.
