PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - Warm temperatures will continue through the work week, but rain will accompany the warmth over the next few days.

Scattered showers will be possible Monday morning into the early afternoon. A few showers can be expected through the morning drive, but most of today’s rain looks to occur from the late morning into the early afternoon. Showers will end by the time we head home from work, leaving us with dry conditions for the evening. Despite the rain chances, temperatures will come in just a few degrees below average with highs in the upper 50′s for most.
