Friday: Warming trend begins (and new September photos needed)

LANSING, Ill. (August 31, 2023) — It is an unofficial rule of the daily weather post that the photos published have to be taken within the current month. So Friday’s weather post, published Thursday night, is the last one that will include August weather photos. Starting September 1, all the photos must be taken in September.

We had a greater variety of weather photographers in August 2023 than in any previous month — 20 of you submitted about 29 photos. An estimated 9 of those photographers were first-timers.

The photos below were all submitted on August 30 or 31. We look forward to seeing how our local photographers start September.
