The weather for this weekend will be influenced by a low pressure system, which will be moving to our north near the Great Lakes. This system will bring a cold front over our region, giving us chance at rain and thunderstorms throughout today and tomorrow. By Sunday morning, we should again be seeing sunny skies, which look to last until Tuesday. We will also see a drop in temperature as a result of this system, making way for cooler temperatures on Sunday and the early part of next week.
As the low pressure system moves toward our north, there is a 20% chance of scattered showers today. However most of the rain looks to remain just north of us, affecting Indiana and Lexington. We will be experiencing winds between 5-10 mph from our Southwest, and the temperature today will continue the pattern of the past few days, with a high of 90 and low of 70.
The cold front will begin moving across our region in late morning Saturday, bringing some slightly cooler temperatures and a 50% chance for rain and thunderstorms. Rain will remain a possibility throughout the day, with a 30% chance until around 8pm. Winds will continue from the Southwest at 6-11 mph, but gusts up to 20 mph are expected. The temperature will fall slightly into the upper 80’s as the high, and a low of a cooler high 50’s.
The cold front will have moved out of our area by late Saturday night, making for great weather on Sunday. The skies will remain clear throughout the day, and we’ll finally get some relief from high temperatures. Winds will shift to be blowing from the Northeast at 3-7 mph. The high for Sunday will be at a comfortable 78 degrees, and a low in the mid 50’s.
