Discussion

Low pressure that has been stuck over the Midwest for the last several days will continue to send bands of showers and thunderstorms our way for the next 24-36 hours and some of the rain can fall heavily at times and this will raise concerns again about flash flooding. This slow-moving system will finally be kicked out of the picture later this week by a strong cold frontal system that will usher in cool air for the weekend. Winds on Saturday behind the front will be out of the north and quite noticeable and temperatures will likely do no better than the low 60’s during the afternoon hours. While a light shower or two cannot be ruled out on Saturday, the general trend will be for drier weather compared to what we’ve had recently and Sunday and Monday look to be rain-free albeit still quite cool.
