A line from DeWitt County eastward is still dealing with drought.
Tuesday's rains did little to provide relief for central Illinois according to Ed Shimon at the National Weather Service in Lincoln. On the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday, Shimon told Regional Radio there are areas still four to five inches below normal.
We'll be cool the rest of the week but the heat returns next week. Shimon says with that is very little moisture relief.
Shimon notes there is a very strong signal for above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation in August.
