Time to Wash the Car....

....after Friday!

It will be a very pleasant Thursday afternoon with a lot of sunshine and comfortable warmth in the upper 70's today. And while our Thursday will stay dry, rain arrives early Friday ahead of our next cold front.

We will notice mainly rain showers, but can't rule out a few rumbles of thunder through the afternoon on Friday. You'll want to keep the umbrella handy with on and off rain and thunder through out the day. Rain totals will range between about 0.25-0.75", with heavier rain possible to the south.
The rain will come to an end late Friday and then the weather pattern turns a bit more quiet.

High pressure builds to the south, allowing upper level ridging through central Illinois. This set up keeps rain  and storm chances to the outer edge of that high pressure system as energy rotates through that region. The northern jet stays close to the Canadian border, and again will keep most rain and storm chances north of the area. Storms are usually tied to jet placement because energy or disturbances tend to ride along those areas. Looking past Friday, rain and storm chances will be contained to north and southern portions of the United States. Northern jet keeps rain just north of the area in Wisconsin. Besides Friday, our next chance for rain arrives Wednesday, but overall that is just a slight chance.
