WSIL — The string of rain free days is coming to an end as a cold front approaches from the north. A mild Tuesday is still expected with temperatures this morning in the 60s and likely topping off in the mid 70s this afternoon.
The cold front is expected to stall across southern Illinois by this afternoon with winds gradually going from the southwest more towards to the west and northwest. A few scattered showers and t-storms are expected along and south of Route 13 later this afternoon. Severe weather is not likely, but heavy rain and lightning is possible.
Chief meteorologist Jim Rasor will have the latest on this week’s rain chances coming up tonight on News 3.
