Sprawling high pressure continued to dominate the weather across
the upper midwest through the night, providing light winds and
mainly clear skies. Overnight lows were mainly in the 50s, but a
few of the typical cool spots dipped into the 40s.
The high will linger for one more day, allowing ample sunshine and
warm temperatures to finish up the weekend. Highs will be some 10
to 15 degrees above normal for the latter part of May, from the
upper 70s to middle 80s around the area.
But the weather pattern will be shifting as we head into the work
week. A slow moving storm system will shift into the area Monday
and Tuesday, resulting in more clouds and an increasing chance for
showers and thunderstorms. Lows tonight will be in the 50s, with
highs Monday from the middle 70s to middle 80s.
