A fantastic stretch of weather on the way until at least Sunday
Thu, 29 May 2014 14:15:28 GMT —
High pressure will be in firm control of our weather until late weekend when we add back in the chance for a few thunderstorms.
The frontal boundary that brought a few spots a little rain Memorial Day and Tuesday has now pushed all the way south into the Ohio River Valley taking with it any chance for rain locally. In fact, we have at least three and maybe part of four straight dry days on the way with sun filled skies and cool clear crisp nights which will be a nice way to end May and head into June.
Winds will be northeast or northerly Thursday/Friday before turning more east and southeasterly over the weekend. With high pressure in the vicinity, winds will be relatively light allowing for lake breezes to develop pushing a little of that chilly air over the lakes a little bit inland. Temperatures the next few days right along the Great Lakes will remain in the 60's with 70's and even by the weekend a few 80's sprouting up.
The weather will ramp up late in the weekend into next week as a frontal boundary arrives from the west. We may see a few showers or storms as early as Sunday late afternoon or evening. Some weather models indicate that this front will get hung up right over Michigan early next week and stall out with low pressure riding up/along this boundary. If that is the case, then showers and thunderstorms will be possible Sunday all the way through Wednesday next week. Highs next week should remain mild in the 70's.
