Cooler temperatures are continuing to funnel in this afternoon with nearly a 10 degree 24-hour temperature change expected within the next few hours. This will continue into your Saturday, as we will have high's in the mid 80's.
To our north in the Great Lakes region, a high pressure system will keep things dry across the area into Saturday. By Sunday, we will have another cold front approach, bringing with it showers and storms. This MUCH needed rainfall will arrive mainly in the overnight hours Sunday and into the early half of your Monday. We will quickly clear out, allowing for mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70's Tuesday.
As expected, model guidance suggests dry conditions across the region through Saturday before the cold front and showers (out ahead of the front) arrive into Sunday. Latest models suggest around a half an inch for the valley through Monday afternoon, so we will take it! I know starting the work week rainy isn't ideal, but I am sure many of us will gladly accept it given the conditions we have been dealing with.
Thats all we have for your Friday, have a great weekend of "cooler" temperatures before Fall really makes its way in next week.
