Clear skies this evening with temperatures dropping back into the 30s, StormCenter 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said.

Tonight: A freeze warning goes into effect from 10 p.m. tonight to 9 a.m. Wednesday for Clinton, Champaign, Clark and Greene counties.

Clouds will slowly increase tonight with a few passing showers possible across the north. It will be cold, but not as bitter as Monday night with lows in the middle 30s.

Wednesday: A cloudy and cold to start Wednesday with temperatures in the 30s. Clouds thicken with showers developing into the afternoon.

Rain becomes steadier and more widespread by the evening drive with a few embedded thunderstorms. It will be rather windy at times during the day with gusts up to 40 mph possible — not as intense as over the weekend.

Highs for the day may differ depending on location. Areas to the north and west may only reach the mid to upper 50s.

Thursday: Cloudy and cooler with highs in the upper 40s with a chance for showers. Lows in the lower 30s.

Friday: Dry time is expected to start the day with light showers arriving for the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be cooler again, with low 30s expected in the morning and a high temperature expected in the lower 40s. As temperatures cool down in the evening some wet snowflakes could mix in.

Saturday: A cold day expected with temperatures staying in the 30s all day. A few flurries will be possible early, with a mix of sun and clouds later in the day.

Sunday: Skies will start out mostly sunny with an increase in clouds late in the day. Temperatures will moderate into the upper 40s to near 50 degrees by the afternoon. The threat for showers will return by Sunday evening.
