Discussion

A cold front will arrive tonight and it should be accompanied by scattered showers and thunderstorms and some of the storms can be on the strong side. The best chance for showers and thunderstorms will be in the period between 4pm and midnight. The threat for showers and thunderstorms will linger for awhile on Thursday, but humidity will lower noticeably later in the day. High pressure will fill in behind the front on Friday and Saturday with comfortably warm conditions, but then the weather turns unsettled on Sunday with the threat for more showers and thunderstorms. The unsettled weather will continue early next week as a deep upper level trough sets up over the Great Lakes region.
