You couldn't ask for a more beautiful end to the week! High temperatures heading into our weekend will hover in the mid to upper 70s with no rain in sight. Morning lows will continue to be a bit chilly, but not as low as what we saw the past two mornings with lows dipping into the mid 40s. A large area of high pressure is sitting just to our southwest and will continue to give us sunny skies through the early weekend.
A small disturbance will push through the area Saturday night, but not much in the way of rainfall is expected due to the dry atmosphere. A 20% chance of thunderstorms will come into play on your Sunday, but don't cancel any outdoor plans just yet as most people will see a good deal of sunshine and dry conditions. A more substantial chance for rain will arrive early next week ahead of a cold front which looks to push through during the day on Wednesday.
Short Term Outlook:
Temperatures will gradually cool down overnight and reach a low of 50 degrees by early tomorrow morning. WKU students will need that jacket for early morning classes.
