Forecast Snapshot:

Clouds will decrease through the day as high pressure builds in. Quiet conditions expected Monday through Thursday under partly cloudy skies. A storm passing to our northwest on Friday will bring another round of clouds and rain. Next weekend is looking drier, with a few lake-effect showers possible on Saturday.

Forecast Discussion:

High pressure will continue to result in decreasing clouds for today. The afternoon will feature much warmer temperatures with highs near 60 degrees. Yesterday, we were only in the mid 40s! Mostly clear skies will continue tonight along with areas of patchy fog.

Monday will be seasonable under partly cloudy skies. We remain rather quiet through the end of Thursday as high pressure dominates our pattern. This will result in a blend of sun and clouds. A weak front/ trough will swing through Wednesday which will increase cloud cover across the area but we are not expecting rain showers at this time. Temperatures during this period will max out in the low to mid 60s-- typical for this time of year.

Models are in excellent agreement regarding the timing of our next storm system for Friday. Clouds will increase Thursday night and periods of rain are possible across the area as the center of low pressure tracks across the Great Lakes. Winds will turn out of the northwest behind the storm Saturday. This will push cooler air across the Lakes, perhaps sparking a few lake effect rain showers.
