The first part of May has been a struggle from a weather perspective with lots of rain and cooler than normal days but things quickly turned around as we experienced record-setting heat that is going to transition us to more moderate weather to conclude May.
Ed Shimon at the National Weather Service in Lincoln indicates last week's heatwave set records at their sites in Lincoln, Peoria, and Springfield for both daytime highs and overnight lows.
While today's weather is ideal, Shimon indicates there are chances of showers Tuesday and Wednesday this week before we return to above normal chances for warm weather the rest of the month.
Outlooks are indicating just a slightly above normal chance for precipitation to conclude the month. Shimon notes when you start talking about increased humidity, that does bring chances of pop showers and even thunderstorms so he implores to be watchful.
