...Dry Today Then Rain Chances Move In...

.DISCUSSION...An area of high pressure will be over the region today
and will provide a dry and pleasant day. A cold front will start
to approach from the west Sunday and then will into and become
stationary over the area from Sunday night into Monday night. As
disturbances aloft move over the region, they will interact with
the front to produce occasional rounds of showers and storms with
some of the storms producing some locally heavy rains. The front
will finally get pushed out of the area Tuesday. High pressure
will then set up over the Upper Midwest and remain for the rest of
the week.
