Actively Changing Weather Today & Through The Weekend

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Were you able to enjoy the beautiful weather yesterday? Abundance of sunshine and surface heating brought the temperatures to the 80s and upper 70s. Overnight the start of a wet pattern set up, a low pressure worked into the Great Lakes and brought a line of storms but the sunshine has returned.

Rainy Start…              

A line of showers and storms pushed through the region and brought heavy rain and gusty winds. Although, clearing has occurred quickly after the showers to allow for mostly sunny skies. It will also be humid today with significant moisture lingering which will make it feel like summer. Although we will be watching the skies, with the abundance of moisture and warming it may set the stage for more storms this evening.  Make sure to stay weather aware.

Chance for sunshine this afternoon with possible evening storms

Wet, Wet Weather…

A cold front will pass through the region this afternoon but will pass through quietly and become stationary south of the region. This will cause for a big cool down overnight and then only allow for highs in the low 60s through Sunday. The stationary front will also keep the convection and moisture within the region. And this will allow for showers and storms continue and even become widespread at times throughout the weekend. Estimated 2 to 4 inches of rain possible from today through Sunday, which next week will bring the attention to the river levels.
