All Aboard the Cold Front Express!

If this spike in temperatures and humidity hasn't been your cup of tea, you will like what Mother Nature has on tap for the Midwest and Great Lakes. It starts with Wednesday night's cold front that will move through by early Thursday morning. Along and ahead of that frontal boundary there has been heavy rain, strong storms, and very high humidity values. Once that swings through, Thursday is looking slightly cooler, dry, and less humid. Temperatures are expected to reach the lower to middle 80's, but it won't feel as soupy outside.
As quickly as the humidity retreats, it returns. Another cold front is poised to swing through Friday night into Saturday morning. Ahead of that front we will see a return of the humidity. That front will bring some scattered showers and storms Friday evening and Friday night. Behind that front we will drop down into the 70's for highs all weekend. Overnight lows will be in the 50's -- a few upper 40's are possible Saturday night with ample clear skies and light winds expected to be in place.
Then a third cold front will move through early next week, likely on Tuesday. That will again introduce slightly more humidity on Monday and Tuesday with a chance for some scattered thundershowers. This front will be a little different. It will actually introduce a frost potential to our north and snow in the Rocky Mountains! For us, we may see highs in the 60's for the first time since early June! Overnight lows will easily hit the upper 40's for just about everyone during the latter half of next week! All aboard the cold front train!
