Rain Chances Return Tuesday night and Wednesday


CENTRAL ILLINOIS - A cold front will slide through and set up along the Ohio Valley Tuesday night, with a system developing in the southern Plains. The low will lift along the boundary bringing back a chance for scattered showers and storms late Tuesday night into Wednesday. 

The position of the front and track of the low will play a big roll in where the heaviest rains set up. Most forecast models favor a more southerly track as heaviest rains will fall along and south of I-70. The Euro is the outlier in setting up the front farther north bringing the chance for around 1" or rain toward the I-72 corridor. Rain totals look to range from around 1" or more along and south of a Marshall to Effingham to Vandalia line. A half to .75" inches of rain will be possible from Paris to Shelbyville to Taylorville to Carlinville line. A quarter to half an inch possible up to the I-72 corridor and less than a quarter of an inch for areas north. Rain will start to tapper off Wednesday night with a few linger showers possible along and south of I-70, and east of I-57 into Thursday morning.
