--STORM TEAM FORECAST--
The ridge of high pressure running from the western Great Lakes southward into the mid Mississippi River Valley will continue to slide eastward. This will allow the movement of a storm system in the Plains to slowly move eastward tonight and into the day tomorrow. It will be preceded by a warm front which could be the focus of a few scattered sprinkles or a light shower later tonight.
The main frontal boundary will bring us chances of rain on Thursday with the best chance being during the afternoon and evening. There could be thunderstorms with the arrival of the next weather system, as highs approach 70-degrees by Thursday afternoon.
The best chance of thunderstorms will be across the southern third of the Fox 27 viewing area. So far, it appears that there is little to no threat of any strong to severe thunderstorms for Thursday.
We'll end the work/school week on a good note once again which will take us into the day on Saturday, but with much cooler conditions. A cold front will pass across the region late Friday night to usher in much cooler air for Saturday. No precipitation is expected late Friday, although a sprinkle or two would not be out of the question.
Friday's highs will be in the lower 70s, but highs on Saturday will be in the lower 60s. Expect more rain showers and possible thunderstorms by Sunday afternoon/evening, but so far the weather models are not certain on the timing the possibility of any thunderstorms. Stay tuned to the STORM TEAM at Fox 27 for the latest weather information.
