ILLINOIS (RFD) — Depending on where you’re at in Illinois, you might need a little more rain but you might also be wishing for a long dry stretch.
Chris Miller with the National Weather Service in Lincoln indicates from their office in Lincoln to DeWitt County and most of Piatt County, it is still a little dry, while there are areas Decatur to Springfield and southward that are in good shape. Meanwhile, portions of north-central and far southern Illinois have had plenty of rain.
The hit-and-miss showers and storms that roll through Illinois hitting some places often are generally fronts that are not strong enough to push through to other parts of the state. Miller notes many fronts stall and sit over an area.
