We'll finally see some changes heading into this weekend and this will be a signal of a shift towards more fall-like weather! Saturday may feature some rain in the morning with a dry midday and most of the afternoon. All attention turns to Saturday evening when a cold front is expected to sweep across the area creating a line of showers and thunderstorms. A few of these thunderstorms could be on the strong side packing strong winds and some hail for Saturday evening, so please keep an eye on the sky! High temperatures Saturday should top the upper 60s with a touch of humidity through the afternoon.

Showers exit the region prior to sunrise Sunday morning as this latest storm system heads east. Look for more sunshine by the midday Sunday with high temperatures topping the lower 60s as high pressure slides across the Upper Midwest. Our next storm system arrives for Monday bringing the chance for a few showers to the area Monday afternoon and into Tuesday. While this storm system won't be a big rain maker for us, it will pull cooler air into the region by Tuesday with highs falling back into the lower 50s for highs.
