Cool wind gusts with showers today
A storm system churning away to our east is generating some gusty northwest winds, thick clouds, and scattered light rain showers on its backside as it slowly moves through the Great Lakes. We'll have widely scattered light showers throughout the afternoon and early evening. Winds will occasionally reach 25 miles per hour, certainly adding a chill to the air as high temperatures only be in the mid-50s, about ten degrees below the seasonal average.
Cool midweek sunshine
A few spotty rain showers or sprinkles will be possible early in the day Tuesday as another fast-moving storm system brushes past the area, but sunshine will then break through the clouds for the afternoon, helping temperatures reach the lower 60s. A brisk west breeze around 20 miles per hour will still add an extra chill to the air despite the sunshine.
We'll have abundant sunshine in the area on Wednesday ahead of a storm system and cold front that will be approaching from the northwest. High temperatures will be in the lower 60s with northwest winds gusting to 30 miles per hour at times.
Even cooler late this week
Clouds and some spotty, light rain showers will move in for Thursday as a weak clipper type storm system grazes the area. We'll have brisk winds and high temperatures in the lower 50s Thursday afternoon.
We may be waking up to widespread frost Friday morning and high pressure will be clearing the clouds from our skies early in the day. If the clouds are in fact able to clear quickly enough, temperatures may slip into the lower 30s across the area. We'll have a fair amount of sunshine for the rest of the day with high temperatures only in the upper 40s to around 50 degrees.
A cool, unsettled weekend
We'll have sunshine to start the weekend, but a weak storm system will swing through the area in the heart of the weekend, bringing rain chances for Saturday afternoon and early Sunday. It does look like we'll be able to see enough late-day sunshine Sunday to help temperatures warm to the upper 50s.
Warmer next week
Early indications are that next week will be slightly warmer and closer to the seasonal average for temperatures. At this point, we'll have highs in the mid-60s for much of the upcoming week.
