Clouds will increase overnight. The big question is when it will start raining, and most likely it will be early Friday morning — probably about 7:00 a.m. with showers and thundershowers. The rain is expected to continue through Saturday morning, but with only a total rainfall of about 0.5 inch by noon Saturday.
More rounds of showers & t-storms w/heavy rain expected at times thru wknd. Fri toward eve-early Sat & Sat eve/night-early Sun. may both have widespread showers/storms. Rainfall ~1" to >2-3" psbl, which could cause river rises & flooding/flash flooding. Stay tuned. #ilwx #inwx pic.twitter.com/m2n5TBCptH

Active pattern to continue over the Holiday Weekend with a frontal boundary stretched across the region. The boundary will meander N & S & hence bring periods of showers & t-storms interspersed with short periods of tranquil weather. Temps will be near to above average. pic.twitter.com/9MmbilbgVh
