Another crisp fall-like start to our day as lows reached into the lower 50s again this morning as high pressure continues to reinforce our cool and dry air mass. We’ll continue to see sunshine and pleasant conditions today before our next chance of rain arrives for later tomorrow as an area of low pressure approaches our area from the west. Highs today will make it into the upper 70s.
For Friday expect increasing clouds as the day progresses with scattered showers and thunderstorms becoming likely towards the late evening. Highs will be a tad cooler with all of the cloud cover but will still manage to reach the middle 70s.
Unfortunately the heaviest precipitation looks like it will fall to the north of the area across parts of northeast Iowa and southern Wisconsin, however we’ll take what we can get here locally. No severe weather is expected with this system.
Showers and storms will be possible Saturday morning before we quiet things down for the remainder of the weekend.
The heat it still poised to make a big comeback for much of next week as Tropical Storm Erika (then forecasted to become Hurricane Erika) looks to impact the southeast coast putting a hold on our weather pattern here at home. What this means is several days of high temperatures near 90 degrees and dry conditions continuing through most of next week.
Have a great weekend!
