A very active weather pattern is now in play for the next 3 days. A trough of low pressure is setting up for the Upper Midwest that will dominate right through the weekend.
Dry weather with quite a bit of cloudiness today led to cooler than normal afternoon temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 50s. An approaching storm system has prompted southerly winds and the added atmospheric moisture.
The whole weather pattern will be quite slow or even stalled out through the weekend. Southerly winds will continue, but the system is weak and will lead to only spotty and very light rain tonight into Friday. There will be a brief increase in the intensity of rain Friday night, but it is back to lesser chances again on Saturday.
Through the weekend, temperatures during the day and at night will average near or below normal. Finally chances of rain will increase again for Sunday. We won’t expect any possible flooding to occur.
Enjoy your evening!
