Mid-week in central Illinois is expected to be exceptionally breezy with wind gusts between 30 and 40 miles per hour some afternoons.
Chris Miller with the National Weather Service in Lincoln says the windy days ahead are due to a change in weather patterns.
According to Miller, the rest of this week and into next week is going to remain dry and things are going to cool down. He says while there are small chances of rain, they are unlikely to produce anything significant.
A lot of dry and cool weather heading into the weekend and next week will allow for ideal harvest conditions. Miller says even through the rest of the month will be dry and as of this week, only southern Illinois is looking at the possibility of above-normal precipitation.
