Good morning, y’all! Yesterday felt pretty gloomy to me with all the rain and cloud cover. Yesterday evening, however, was more intense than during the day with some areas receiving hail and thunderstorms. Luckily, though, this weekend looks to be much more boring with plenty of sunshine and dry weather!

I’m going to apologize in advance….most of this forecast will be boring!
A closed upper-level low will move eastward out of the Great Lakes region, with deep northwesterly flow infiltrating into Kentucky. Decreasing cloud cover will lead to sunny skies today and tomorrow with highs for both days in the mid to upper 50’s. Today will be windy, so don’t be fooled by all that sunshine!

Drier air will advect into the region later this evening and overnight, allowing lows to drop into the low 30’s. High pressure will move into the area on Sunday, giving us sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures.
For Monday, high pressure will move eastward out of the region as an impending warm front moves into the area. This will create enough lift for showers and thunderstorms to develop out ahead of the front, possibly starting during the overnight hours on Sunday. When the cold front associated with this system moves through, we’ll see another round of showers, as well.
Today’s Main Points
- Today: Nice and pleasant
- Tomorrow: Nice and pleasant again, just a hair warmer than Saturday
- Monday: Rain enters the forecast
