Where You Live Matters

Labor Day weekend is quickly approaching and all eyes are on the forecast.  With the remnants of Hurricane Isaac slowly making its way north, the overall storm track continues to evolve.  With every new model run, the remnant low pressure continues to track into central Illinois and then abruptly turn east toward Indiana.  However, the track of the low is projected to be further south than what information earlier this week suggested.  Because of this, there will be a compact gradient across our region for rainfall chances.

If you live further north in southern Wisconsin, your chance of rain is significantly less than along the Interstate 88 corridor in northern Illinois.  Here in Rockford, our chance of rain is only 40%.  Central and southern Illinois will bear the brunt of this system.  In fact, the chance of rain along and especially south of Interstate 80 will be near 100% this weekend.  That’s only about 60 miles away!  On the flip side, Madison and Wisconsin Dells could remain completely dry!
