WSIL -- It's Friday! Our beautiful weather the last few days is ending as rain chances pick up starting today and continuing through the weekend.
This morning, a few showers are possible across southeast Missouri, mainly along and south of Highway 60 through around 8 a.m.
By lunch time, some of the showers will begin to spread northward into parts of southern Illinois. Most of these showers will be hit and miss and very light.
Off and on light showers will remain possible well into Friday evening.
By Saturday, warmer air is moving in from the south and most of the daylight hours are looking dry. Enjoy the warmth as temperatures peak in the upper 50s and lower 60s!
Rain moves back in Saturday night, and some is likely to be heavy. Right now, a narrow band of 2" or more is possible, especially from Poplar Bluff to Cape Girardeau to Shawneetown.
While widespread flooding is unlikely, low-lying areas could become inundated with water late Saturday night.
By Sunday morning, rain is wrapping up and more dry daylight hours are likely by Sunday afternoon.
