Friday Night: Showers likely, mainly before 10pm. Cloudy, with a low around 51. Breezy, with a north northeast wind 15 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
A broad upper-low centered in the vicinity of far western Kentucky will continue to influence the weather across the area through the first part of the weekend, with the most noticeable impacts through this evening.
Areas of showers will spread across the area initially from the east this morning and from the northeast this afternoon and evening. Two waves rotating around the upper low will be the main focus for more widespread showers, but isolated to scattered showers or pockets of drizzle will be possible at any given time through at least this evening.
The first wave over western Ohio is quickly shearing WNW early this morning and is expected to continue to brush northeast Illinois with higher shower coverage through mid-morning. Meanwhile, an axis of mid-level deformation over the southern CWA will maintain a locally higher coverage of showers for several hours. Another wave currently near the Tennessee/North Carolina line will rotate northwest toward the area and enhance shower coverage for much of the area mid to late afternoon. While SST-850 hPa delta Ts of ~10C are marginally sufficient for lake-enhancement into NE Illinois on NNE winds this afternoon and evening, the lack of any notable inversion should compensate to some degree.
Mid-level moisture will gradually depart and result in precipitation ending from west to east overnight through early Saturday afternoon.
Weather Radar shows scattered precipitation moving southeast to northwest at 5:50 a.m.
