Today's Forecast Image
  • 71°
  • 49°

A weak upper-level low pressure system is zipping into the Midwest struggling against dry air at the ground level. We could see a brief light shower or two overnight through the AM hours Thursday, but nothing to write home about. Temps dip to the low and mid 50s overnight before rebounding to the low 70s by the afternoon. Skies will clear up after the midday hours.

 

High pressure quickly builds back in allowing for a cool Thursday night in the upper 40s. Highs near 70° with mostly sunny to mostly cloudy skies through Friday. A few showers are possible at night with a better shot Saturday and more-so Sunday. Temps hover in the upper 60s to low 70s. A few more showers remain Monday with low 70s expected before clouds begin to thin out Tuesday with temps jumping back to the mid 70s and upper 70s are expected by midweek with generous sun.
