Saturday's Almanac: Sunrise 7:06 AM Sunset 4:41 PM Average High: 46 Average Low: 28 Record High: 70 (1931) Record Low: 11 (1969)
Clouds will be on the increase Saturday as southerly winds usher in warmer temperatures and eventually the chance for precipitation during the afternoon. Initially the atmosphere will be cold enough to support a light wintry mix, despite the fact that surface temperatures will be above freezing. The 5 Degree Guarantee is 40. Mainly light rain showers are expected at night with lows in the mid 30s. Any icing at night should be isolated.
Mild conditions are likely on Sunday with highs in the lower 50s. Isolated showers are also possible, but a better chance for rain will hold off until Sunday night when an area of low pressure over the Mid West lifts up into the Great Lakes region. Rainfall amounts for us will average between 1/3" and 1/2". Temperatures overnight Sunday will remain well above average with lows in the lower 40s.
Scattered showers will continue into Monday with temperatures soaring into the lower 60s. A cold front will push through at night, ushering in cooler and drier conditions Tuesday. Tuesday's temperatures will top out in the mid 40s.
Looking ahead to the big travel day on Wednesday, mainly quiet weather conditions are expected locally with the chance for a few flurries and temperatures in the upper 30s. For Thanksgiving Day, we'll see mostly cloudy skies with highs in the upper 30s. Similar conditions are likely on Friday with a little more sunshine expected to develop.
Have a great weekend!
