A few chilly days ahead to begin an unsettled week in the Rockford region
ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Say goodbye to the gusty winds that Saturday had throughout the region. Those will subside for Sunday but our active weather pattern will continue with several chances for precipitation over the next few days.
Sunday will have our highest chances for rain, especially in the morning. The forecast high for Sunday will be shortly after midnight and then a cold front will come barrowing through the region. It will drop temperatures to levels in the mid-to-upper 40s for most of Sunday. The very scattered and light rain will move out by lunch hour and the second half of Sunday will see clearing skies! However, the clearing skies won’t last long.
Continuing on Monday, additional periods of rain are expected during the week. Through Tuesday, daytime temperatures will be noticeably cooler in the upper 40s and lower 50s. But there is some good news, it’s possible we could warm back up into the 60s and flirt with 70 degrees by mid-week.
However the entire week does call for rain chances each day. By the end of the week, its possible that most of the region could see a bit above an inch of rain over the next several days. These numbers are likely to be changed but no matter how you slice it, keep the raincoat and umbrella handy. But each day will have plenty of dry hours.
