Pesky Low Keeps Showers Around

A very pesky "cut-off" low has been swirling in place on the northern shore of Lake Superior for the last 48 hours. It is the same low that swung the cold front through our region late Sunday. The low has kept low clouds, showers, gusty winds, and cool temperatures in place just to our north since Sunday. Although it hasn't moved much at all since Sunday, it will slowly drop south towards the Illinois-Indiana border Tuesday night and Wednesday. That will result in showery, cloudy, and cool weather for the Stateline through Wednesday evening. The low will then slowly move into Ohio, taking the shower activity with it -- only for 24 hours, though.

As the low area of low pressure sits in the Ohio Valley Wednesday night and Thursday, it will be far enough away to allow for a partly cloudy and milder day Thursday. Temperatures should be able to warm into the lower 70's, but the winds will remain breezy. The break in cloudiness doesn't last, however. The low pressure center will meander back westward into Indiana Friday and Saturday. That will bring back the chance of a few showers. The low will edge away from the region late Saturday, which will bring an end to the extensive cloudiness, windiness, and showery weather for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday!
