Warm and Rainy Tomorrow, Clear and Chilly End of Week

We had plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures today with highs in the mid 40s under clear blue skies.  Clouds will be on the increase, but we should remain mostly dry with mild low temperatures overnight tonight.  Tomorrow, however, will be a slightly different story as a low pressure system makes its way into our region.

As shown in the graphic below, a center of low pressure will be moving over the Great Lakes region tomorrow.  The associated warm front will move through our area earlier in the day.  So, tomorrow will be slightly warmer with highs in the low 50s.  However, there will be a chance of scattered showers throughout the day.  The cold front will move through in the evening, and bring us rather chilly temperatures Thursday night and Friday.

Looking further ahead, another weather maker will move through the area Saturday night into Sunday and bring us another chance of rain/snow mix.  After that system moves through, the start of next week looks chilly as highs may not make it out of the 30s.


Tonight:  Increasing clouds, a slight chance of a shower late, lows near 38°, and winds out of the south at around 6-12 mph.

Tomorrow:  Cloudy skies, a 40% chance of showers, highs near 52°, and winds out of the southwest at around 10-15 mph.

Tomorrow Night:  Mostly cloudy skies, a slight chance of a lingering shower early, lows near 29°, and winds out of the northwest at around 7-10 mph.

Friday:  Mostly sunny skies, highs near 38°, and winds out of the north at around 5-8 mph.

Friday Night:  Partly cloudy skies, lows near 22°, and light winds out of the north.

Saturday:  Mostly cloudy skies, highs near 44°, and winds out of the southeast at around 3-5 mph.

Saturday Night:  Cloudy skies, a 30% chance of rain/snow mix, lows near 32°, and winds out of the southeast at around 4-6 mph.

Sunday:  Cloudy skies, a 70% chance of rain/snow mix, highs near 42°, and winds out of the south at around 6-8 mph.
