PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - Get the rain gear ready! Widespread showers and a few thunderstorms will pass through the region this morning.

Wet conditions will be the main storyline for Wednesday as a system passes through the region. Expect steady showers through the morning drive into the late morning before rain chances begin to decrease. A few heavy downpours and a few rumbles of thunder are possible, otherwise; we’ll see steady showers.
