Discussion

A cold front worked its way through the region on Wednesday, but it will remain close enough to generate more showers and thunderstorms later today and early tonight and some of the rain can be heavy at times. High pressure will control the weather on Friday and Saturday providing us with pleasant overall conditions, but then the humidity will begin to climb again later in the weekend. The threat for showers and thunderstorms will rise significantly early next week with the approach of another strong cold front. That front should usher in cooler air for the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes and Northeast US later next week.
