...Colder This Week With Periods of Showers and Gusty Winds...

.DISCUSSION...A cold front will push across the area today for
isolated to scattered showers. Gusty northwest winds will also
occur behind the front, especially west of the Mississippi River.
A strong area of low pressure over Lower Michigan will push more
showers into the area tonight into Tuesday. This storm system will
also produce strong northwest winds with gusts 30 to 40 mph late
tonight through Tuesday. Wednesday looks dry but then shower
chances return Thursday afternoon into Friday as another area of
low pressure and cold front move through the region. A few flakes
of snow may be seen early Friday morning mixing in with the rain
showers. Plan on highs today in the 55-60 degree range, falling
into the 40s Tuesday. Temperatures Wednesday and Thursday will be
seasonable with highs in the 50s but then drop below normal on
Friday again into the 40s.
