A few wind-driven showers were felt through the morning and afternoon Tuesday, but cloud cover will gradually clear Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The clear sky doesn’t last too long, however, as a quick moving low pressure system will dive southeast from the High Plains Wednesday morning. This will fill our skies back with cloud cover during the morning, along with bringing a few light rain showers to northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.
Low pressure will move across northern Illinois Wednesday afternoon, placing the heaviest rainfall across southern Wisconsin. Strong high pressure located over the Gulf states will limit how much moisture makes it this far north, keeping rainfall totals on the lighter side. Those light rain showers will last through Wednesday evening with skies becoming partly cloudy Wednesday night into Thursday.
