ROCKFORD (WREX) — For the second afternoon in a row, a few spots in the Stateline will get a quick shower or downpour before drier weather takes over for a short while.
Overnight, dry weather will be in place under a partly cloudy sky. There should be enough of a breeze to keep the air mixed, preventing patchy fog. Temperatures will be a little cooler and fall in to the upper 50’s.
Thursday may be one of the few dry days this week, considering more rain may fall going into the weekend. Partly cloudy weather remains in place, along with highs in the upper 70’s. Thursday should be the least humid day this week. Dew point temperatures will be at or under a comfortable 60 degrees. The humidity will be on the rise over the rest of the week. Look for muggy conditions again by the weekend.
Starting Friday and lasting into the weekend, an active weather pattern will bring scattered showers back to the forecast at times. The first chance for rain looks to be between Friday morning and afternoon. The storms should taper off by Friday evening.
Additional rain chances appear Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon. Storms may also move through the Midwest Saturday morning. For now, this round of rain looks to miss us, but that may change depending on the storm track. Saturday morning’s round of showers and storms could provide heavy rainfall and strong winds for the areas that do get the rain. Monitor the forecast as we approach the weekend to stay up to speed on any storm threats. Temperatures will be on the rise again, with highs in the 80’s Friday through Sunday.
The active weather may not be done yet after this weekend. A slight chance for scattered showers and storms is possible Monday through Wednesday of next week.
