The month of June is shaping up to be dry and warmer.
That is the message from National Weather Service Meteorologist Chris Miller who says as we enter June, there are indications of a dry stretch on the way. While there could be some rain in the forecast, things should warm up and be dry.
Later in the summer, the National Weather Service is looking at a trend towards above-normal precipitation, however, Miller is hesitant to buy into that prediction. He points out, later in the summer is typically the driest part of the year for central Illinois.
While the late summer can be traditionally dry, Miller points out central Illinois is often impacted by the remnants of tropical storms in the south, leading to the possibility things could be wet.
After an unbelievable weather weekend, chances of rain return later this week as temperatures are expected to creep back into the 80s.
