Thursday will likely be a mostly cloudy day with highs in the mid 60s before showers begin to move into the region along a weak cold front. Rain becomes likely after 6pm on Thursday and will continue through the overnight hours, ending sometime before sunrise on Friday as the front exits the region.

On Saturday, winds switch back around from the south ahead of our next weather system, bringing moisture back to the metro and helping high temperatures climb back to near 60. Showers will begin to develop Saturday night out ahead of a low-pressure system that develops over the Central Plains and moves northeast to the Great Lakes region, sending a cold front through the metro late Sunday. Ahead of the cold front, showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop and move into the area. At this time, organized severe weather is not anticipated but we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated should the situation change.
