Low pressure sits just off to our west as high pressure hangs out to our east, bringing winds out of the south, which will make for a bit of a breeze through the afternoon. A good bit of sunshine with a few passing clouds from time to time will help bring our temperatures above average once again as highs climb to the mid to upper 70s. Typically, we’d find ourselves in the upper 60s and low 70s for this time of year. This evening will bring variable clouds, though we’ll stay dry. To our south, a few showers and storms will develop, and could potentially spark a few showers and rumbles of thunder just south of the I-90 corridor. Lows tonight will dip to the upper 50s and low 60s.

Wednesday is looking to be a dry day with sun and clouds, as well as lighter winds from the south. Most places will have a shot at climbing into the low and mid-80s. Thursday will turn mostly sunny with similar temperatures, but the winds could become a little breezy once again. Friday, a slow-moving storm system approaches from the west. Most models already bring a chance of rain for Friday, winds will remain breezy and temperatures will take a small step back. Saturday seems to carry our best chance of rain as of right now, with also some thunderstorms possible. Winds will still be on the stronger side Saturday, with temperatures dropping into the 70s. The storm system will gradually dissipate Sunday, with decreasing rain chances and cloud cover. But also starting of the week next Monday, we keep a slight chance for some rain in place. Eventually the winds will also calm down. We will be in a much cooler air mass by then though, with highs in the upper-60 to low-70s.
