Weekend Weather Forecast

An area of low pressure will lift northeast towards the Great Lakes this weekend and will stick around into early next week.

After starting off sunny, Saturday will see an increase in cloud cover. The clouds will start off thin with plenty of sunlight shining through. Gradually, the clouds will increase and thicken, with mostly cloudy skies expected by the end of the day.

No rain is expected until well after midnight, when a few predawn showers will be possible across the southern half of the region. The chances for showers will increase after sunrise on Sunday, starting in the southwest and spreading east-northeast.

Areas along and north of I-90 may not see the rain until the late morning or midday hours, but widespread showers and some periods of steadier rain are likely through the afternoon. The showers will taper off during the early evening hours, with most of the overnight staying dry.

Monday morning is looking mostly dry at this point, but the afternoon will see an increase in showers and thunderstorms. A few of the storms may have some blustery winds and heavy downpours. The details on the timing and evolution of the rain on Monday still have some uncertainties, though.

For temperatures, expect a mild day today with highs around 80 degrees. Nighttime temperatures will stay near or above 60 degrees with the clouds and a light south wind.

Sunday will be cooler with the clouds and showers with highs mostly in the low 70s. Some northern areas that see the rain hold off longer may reach the mid 70s.

Thank you for your patience and understanding this week as I took some planned rest with my family. It was very beneficial! I will be back on my normal update schedule starting Monday morning.
