The low pressure system in the lower Ohio River Valley continues to
slowly move south today. Therefore, we are still under the influence
of northerly winds. Skies will be mostly clear and temperatures will
remain around normal tonight.

On Friday, the low pressure system will begin to back-track slightly
to the NW into Indiana. We will remain on the back side of this
system but as it moves toward the CWA, cloud cover will increase
throughout the day. In addition, there is a slight chance for light
rain in the eastern portion of the CWA Friday night into Saturday
morning. Cloud cover will push further west and stick around for most
of the day Saturday, but the low pressure system will finally begin
to move completely out of the area. High temperatures will increase
a few degrees Friday for the western portion of the CWA as cloud
cover keeps the eastern portion a few degrees cooler. Temperatures
Saturday will reach the low 70s.

As the low pressure system in the Ohio Valley moves out the clouds
will clear and the high pressure over western KS pushes into the CWA
Sunday. Winds will shift to the south Sunday and increase high
temperatures a few degrees to the mid-70s. WAA increases Monday and
Tuesday as the ridge axis centers over the area. Highs will be in the
upper 70s, lower 80s. The strong upper low pressure system currently
off the West Coast will begin to approach the area Tuesday. Storm
chances increase Tuesday night into Wednesday ahead of a cold front.
