Strong storms with heavy rains developed across southern Illinois on Monday afternoon offering the first real break from the hot weather that lead to a weekend-long excessive heat warning. Stormy weather is expected to continue across the region all week as a front moves into the region and stalls out. While severe weather won't be a huge concern, heavy rains will, but more than anything, these storms will offer a much welcome break from the heat.
