Easily the shortest road trip I’ve done, with only a measly 119 miles separating the 2 cities. I drove over 350 miles this weekend personally watching a couple college hockey games. This trip should only take about 1 hour and 45 minutes to accomplish. There are longer commutes to work in Los Angeles I’m pretty sure.
An area of high pressure over the Great Lakes is keeping an area of moderate rain showers over southern Illinois and western Kentucky, with overcast skies over central IL. The low pressure system kicking up this precipitation shield will be slow to move towards the east today as the high pressure stubbornly gives way. Clouds will remain over the route for the entire day, but should be dry for our morning drive eastward into Iowa. Didn’t even need to put in that second CD.
