Another dry, pleasant day in store though with an increase in high clouds and slightly warmer afternoon highs. This evening should be just about perfect.....with temps falling through the 60s after sunset...and overnight lows will be relatively warm....mostly above 50°. Not much change to the overall weekend outlook, though details continue to shift a bit amongst various numerical models. The main story is that tomorrow will be dry and warm....perhaps a bit breezy at times, and with quite a bit of high and mid-level cloud cover developing. By late Saturday night showers/T'storms are likely to be moving into our western counties...and Sunday and Sunday night will feature clouds and areas of rain and embedded T'storms. The devil is in the details, however, as some models are quicker and drier and some are slower and wetter, even developing a trailing low by Sunday night into Monday. If the slower models are correct we could have some rainfall lingering or even re-developing into Monday.
Looking out into next week, we're still expecting a nice cold 'snap' about mid-week as an upper trough moves quickly southeast out of Canada and through the Ohio Valley. This would bring some of the coolest air of the season thus far from Tuesday into about Thursday morning. Wednesday and Wednesday night in particular look quite chilly with highs perhaps below 60...and lows Thursday morning in the 30s depending on whether winds die down or not. After this weekend's system the next chance of rain looks to be late next week as another weak front moves through from west to east.
