Cool, unsettled weather continues today as a storm system slowly works its way across the area. While the main band of rain we dealt with this morning has moved on to the east, we’ll still have a few spotty showers and isolated thunderstorms in the area between doses of sunshine while gusty north winds draw in cool air and temperatures hover in the 60s.
Under clear, starlit skies tonight, temperatures will drop quickly to the mid 40s across the area with just a light northwest breeze as high pressure settles into the Upper Mississippi Valley.
The best weather day this week looks to be Thursday as high pressure dominates the region, bringing abundant sunshine and dry, tranquil conditions. High temperatures tomorrow will be in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees with just a hint of a northwest breeze.
Gusty southwest winds and bright mid June sunshine will help temperatures warm quickly into the mid 70s Friday, but a few showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible in the afternoon.
Saturday looks fairly unsettled at this point with shower chances in the early morning hours and then a few more showers and thunderstorms possible by mid afternoon. A little sunshine will break through from time to time with high temperatures in the upper 70s.
Father’s Day is looking better and better with just a small chance for a brief shower or two early in the day, then full scale clearing will allow temperatures to make their way into the mid and upper 70s for the afternoon.
