Showers and thunderstorms will be fairly common across much of the northern 1/2 of the region today and then by tomorrow, the area of more concentrated showers and thunderstorms looks to then set up across the SE 1/3rd of the Midwest.

Much of the region looks to be dry for the weekend, the exceptions being the northern 1/4 to 1/3rd of the region, where some cool air aloft will lead to chances for scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms. The nature to the rains will not have them provide an all day wash out, even for areas where there is a good chance of them to occur. The greatest chance for the precip will occur in the afternoon both days. See maps for more.

Temps will be running in the 80’s in most areas for today and tomorrow, with some 70’s hanging on in the Northwoods. A few low 90’s will also be scattered into the south. Cooler air then looks to build back in as we head through the weekend.


The outlook for next week still sees the southern 2/3rds of the region to see fairly dry weather occur, with some scattered, hit and miss, rains across the northern 1/3rd.

Temps in this time frame will briefly warm into the 80’s and even some low 90’s for around midweek and then cool back down to below average for the very end of the week.
