Warmer temperatures, sun on tap for election day

ROMEOVILLE – The forecast is good for voters who are heading to the polls to cast ballots in Illinois' primary election.

The National Weather Service says much of the state should be partly-to-mostly sunny on Tuesday with mild temperatures, although wind gusts could be strong and climb to almost 30 miles per hour in some areas.

In northwestern Illinois, the high is expected to reach about 55 degrees, while the forecast calls for a high of 46 in Chicago.

In central Illinois, forecasters say it could reach 57 in Springfield, 56 in Peoria and 55 in Champaign.

It's supposed to be even warmer in southern and southwestern Illinois. Forecasters predict a high near 60 in Belleville and Carbondale.
