Travel Outlook for Sunday

Weekend weather remains pleasant through Saturday and Sunday for most of the Midwest. High pressure ridge builds in Saturday afternoon which features a drier air mass. This will help get rid of the thick cloud deck we've had for the past couple days.

Stroll on State in Rockford Saturday features very pleasant weather! Thickness levels rise in the atmosphere, which means temperatures will be rising! With the kickoff for the event at 3pm temperatures will be in the upper 40's to near 50° along with partly cloudy to partly sunny skies. Winds will be turning to the southwest for the afternoon. Temperatures then for most of the event will be in the mid to then low 40's, but should fall into the upper 30's by the end of the event at 9pm.

A strong low pressure system develops in the plains Saturday and Sunday, and this will bring widespread rain by Sunday afternoon from Iowa to Missouri and into portions of the central Plains. If you're traveling on Sunday, especially in the afternoon you will run into rain and even thunderstorms, while the Stateline and the upper Great Lakes region stays dry.

However, that system will bring widespread rainfall late Sunday night into Monday morning. Dry air wraps in and shuts off the rain midday Monday before another round of rain Monday night into early Tuesday.

After that a strong cold front passes dropping temperatures into the low 40's through the end of next week.
