High Pressure Rules Again
We have another nice day ahead. Some patchy fog early on followed by bright sunshine through most of the day. Clouds begin to fill in a bit this afternoon, but temperatures should still reach well into the 70s. The exception is going to be right down by Lake Superior where a light onshore flow develops after lunchtime keeping us noticeably cooler at the beach.
Showers move into our southern zones overnight. A frontal boundary moves overhead Friday giving us a chance for scattered showers, perhaps a general thunderstorm or two. Friday may also be a touch on the humid side, but nothing oppressive.
As for the weekend, the best chance for showers is Sunday morning. Saturday will likely be the sunnier, warmer day of the weekend. However, we're still keeping a small threat for showers, especially north along the International Border.
Cooler temps move in Sunday with a slow warming trend through next week.
Have a great day!
