The drought monitor continues to look better and better for central Illinois.  In fact, a large area in south-central Illinois is no longer in a drought.  The further northwest you go, the drought does grow into a moderate drought, but that is quite the improvement over the Exceptional Drought we had this summer.  You can get more on the drought categories in our Weather 101 Section.  

Looking ahead, the 8 to 14 day forecast is looking to bring us more rain than normal, but the October forecast is looking dry.
