However, a cold front will enter northeast Illinois between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. The air temperature will begin dropping from about 52°F at 12:30 p.m. down to 32°F by 11:00 p.m. Monday. A stiff southwest wind has kept a chill in the air this morning, and will bring a greater chill when winds shift from the northwest by 3:30 p.m. Winds have been gusting from the southwest has high as 28 MPH.

Two Low Pressure Centers on the National Forecast Chart are passing through — one entering southwest Wisconsin, and one passing through southern Missouri and southern Illinois.
