Temperature Spread

A slow-moving area of low pressure will bring rounds of showers and thunderstorms to northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. A warm front associated with this system will wreak havoc with meteorologists, including yours truly, in regards to temperatures!

The front will waver back and forth ever so slightly near our local area. An east wind off of Lake Michigan will keep things pretty chilly north of the front while a southeast wind will allow for mild temperatures to the south of the front. The problem? Our area will be near and at times in this transition zone.

A great example was Saturday. The afternoon high only reached 52 degrees in Lake Geneva while Dixon climbed up to 68 degrees! That same spread looks to set up shop on Sunday. If you take a drive down I-39, temperatures will be in the lower 50s in Madison, middle 50s in Janesville, upper 50s in Rockford, lower 60s in Rochelle, middle 60s in Paw Paw, and near 70 in LaSalle-Peru!

Monday should be a relatively mild day for much of the area (rainy though). Models are beginning to come into agreement and it appears that much of our area will hit 60 on Monday.

By Tuesday, a temperature spread of 20 to 30 degrees is still a good bet from Milwaukee to Moline, with the Stateline right in the transition zone.
