Beautiful weather continues
Wed, 09 Oct 2013 13:05:02 GMT —
High pressure insures great weather for the second half of the workweek.
A frontal system off to the west in the plains will remain stationary, until a stronger low pressure will move it towards us Friday, causing rain chances to begin late Saturday.
Until then, a high pressure system is located to the south of the Great Lakes, and will provide ample sunshine and clear skies at night across the midwest.
We'll also have above normal temperatures continue for Wednesday into the weekend, with afternoon highs in the mid 60s to low 70s, and lows mainly in the 40s.
Winds will stay southerly, for most at 5-15mph, but gusts closer to 25mph are possible along the lakeshores and for the northernmost counties on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday winds will be lighter.
Weather looks to be great for Friday night football games, with clear skies and temps in the 40s and 50s.
Things change on Saturday, however, with cloud cover increasing in the afternoon and the next chances of rain arriving in the evening. Scattered showers will continue to pass through the area Sunday as a cold front moves across Michigan.
It'll feel a little more like fall heading into the next workweek, with highs dropping into the mid 50s.
