The cold front headed our way is sitting off to the northwest, creeping into Illinois this morning. The front will move through our state this afternoon and evening bringing some rain showers. Behind the front winds will weaken back to 5-10 mph overnight.

Overnight the front stalls just south of Indiana giving us a dry start to Wednesday before it moves back north Wednesday afternoon returning showers to central Indiana.

Cooler air will settle in behind the front dropping temperatures through the end of the work week. Thursday will be the soggiest day of the week as the front makes its final push east of Indiana. Over the weekend high pressure builds back in returning sunshine and dry conditions.
