Central Illinois’ cool weather pattern this August is almost becoming tradition. This is the second year in a row the region has experiences cooler than average temperatures.
Chris Miller with the National Weather Service in Lincoln thanks cool weather in the Northwest.
“You’ve got weather systems coming at us from the northwest, which is bringing dry and cooler air to the region,” says Miller. “It’s high pressure from Canada dropping on down.”
Miller expects below average temperatures and dry conditions to persist over the next few weeks, but will monitor the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico for developing storms that could change the outlook.
