Weekend Weather

You might have woken up to the thunderstorms overnight, but as we look into the weekend it will feature fairly dry and comfortable conditions. Today will still be warm with highs near 80°, despite the cold front south of the area. The cooler air will lag, which it typically does with summer time fronts, but arrives tomorrow bringing high temperatures into the low 70's and upper 60's through the weekend.

Drier air will advect in behind the front, so humidity will drop quite a bit through the weekend and into next week. Overall you can expect a dry weekend, but there are a few spotty rain chances through Sunday. An upper level trough will dig in over the Midwest and Great Lakes, and will tug with it cooler air. But, there will also be a few disturbances that ride along the trough that could squeeze out what little moisture we'll have overhead. Both this evening and Saturday evening feature isolated shower chances. A strong wave passes through Sunday and this will bring slightly higher chances for showers, and maybe even a rumble of thunder Sunday evening. Right now, that chance is still relatively low, but we'll keep you posted if that changes in forecast updates!
