No major changes. Cooler and slightly less humid air will take over for most of the rest of this week. Showers and thunderstorms will also occur, especially by the end of the week. The early look at the weekend sees showers possible in most areas to the east of the MS River.

Things look to be mainly dry across most of the region for today and tomorrow.

By later tomorrow and into Thursday, an area of low pressure looks to work into the west and bring chances for showers and thunderstorms to areas west of the MS River. By Friday, those rains look to spread into much of the eastern Midwest.

Temps will be cooler for the rest of this week. 70’s look to dominate most of MN, WI, upper and lower MI, with 80’s elsewhere. Humidity levels will be more tolerable in all areas for the rest of the week, but enough humidity will remain across the southern 2/3rds of the region to at least feel it, but not be oppressed.

The rains for the end of this week look to continue off and on into the eastern sections of WI, IL and most of MI, IN and OH into the weekend, while drier weather builds into the west.

The first part of next week sees things to quiet down in most of the region as we head through the period.

Temps in this time frame look to run below average, with 70’s in the northern 1/3rd of the region and 80’s in the rest of the Midwest. Humidity levels will a bit lower than average, but still not unusually low.
