    Storms roll in later this afternoon. Some of these could bring in isolated spots of hail and gusty winds up to 60 mph. Storms wind down later by this evening.

    More rain chances return as we go towards the end of the 7 day forecast as another set of lows move into our portion of the Midwest thanks to a ridging pattern out west brings in more heat in the Plains that bleed into Central Illinois. This will help bring in more lows around the ridge and therefore more storms here locally.

    Dew points will rise along with the storm chances and warmer temperatures. This will bring in more uncomfortable conditions to the area.
