afternoon. Farther north, over the remainder of central Illinois,
skies were cloudy. High temperatures were a few degrees above

far north as the southern half of Illinois and Indiana. Northerly
flow behind this weather system, will bring cool and dry weather 
to the region, for Tuesday and Wednesday.

across the Midwest, while highs on Tuesday will reach the upper
30s to mid 40s.
