A Stormy Start, But A Nice End to the Weekend

It hasn't been the nicest end to the work week with all the rain moving through during the entire afternoon, but luckily that has now cleared out.  We stay in the upper 50°s to low 60°s as we head through the evening, and we'll also see the clouds decrease.  By the time we move into the overnight we'll have partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid 50°s.  We get a break from the rain through tomorrow afternoon, but we'll have a chance for some thunderstorms starting in the evening around 6 when a low pressure system makes its approach from the plains.  This low is what brought us the rain today, but as it moves closer it'll pull in more warmth and moisture into our area.  This will be nice for most of the day tomorrow with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the 70°s, but by the time we get to around 6pm we'll see those temperatures warm up even more with the approaching warm front, and this will lead to thunderstorm development.

Most of the thunderstorms will develop to the west and southwest of the Stateline, mainly in eastern Iowa and along the Iowa and Illinois border.  However, since that low will be tracking northeast, we could see a few thunderstorms move into our area during the evening hours.  Furthermore, we'll see more rain occurring during the late-night hours and through the overnight as a cold front will pass through the stateline, but we could also see a few thunderstorms lingering along the front during the overnight as well.

The front will move out Sunday morning around 7am, where we'll stay dry for the rest of the day with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid 70°s.  Along with that, we hang on to the dry and beautiful weather for the rest of the week!
