Friday Afternoon Forecast Discussion

The week ended on a very nice note for us and there was a chill in the air today. Tonight we will cool into the middle 30s, but a light south breeze should keep us above freezing. Look for a nice warm-up into the 60s tomorrow, with a mostly sunny sky expected. A blast of frigid air will be dropping into the Midwest this weekend. The core of this air will pass to our north; however, we will experience a slight drop in temperatures. Look for lows near freezing Saturday night, with highs only in the 50s on Sunday. The good news is that more sunshine can be expected for Sunday.

The sky will grow partly cloudy on Monday, with highs warming into the 60s. This will be in advance of another potent storm system. Look for more clouds on Tuesday along with the chance for rain and thunderstorms Tuesday night. Right now some strong thunderstorms can’t be ruled out, but the setup at this point doesn’t look as dangerous as what came together earlier this week. We will continue to monitor things closely, just in case some surprise ingredients come into the mix. The timing for this event will be much like last week, with the rain likely during the early morning hours on Wednesday and then we will have afternoon clearing. I will have more details for you tonight at five, six, and ten!
