Tuesday was cool and cloudy across the Heartland. A cloudy sky and
light northwest breeze kept temperatures mild, with afternoon highs
only in the middle 60s. Clouds departed much of the area Tuesday
evening, but were on the increase once again late in the night.
Early this Wednesday morning, temperatures ranged from the upper 40s
to lower 50s with 5 to 10 mph southwest winds.
A passing cold front trailing from low pressure moving across the
Ohio Valley will bring a period of showers and perhaps a few
thunderstorms to much of the area today. Better coverage is expected
east of the Mississippi River. Behind the front, dry and cooler
weather is expected Thursday and Friday as high pressure takes hold.
A warming trend will take hold by the weekend as southerly winds
develop on the back side of the departing high. The chance for
showers and thunderstorms will gradually return late in the weekend
as a cold front approaches from the north.
Temperatures will be cooler than normal until Friday with generally
60s to lower 70s for highs and 40s for lows. Warming will begin on
Friday, and by the weekend, highs will rise above normal into the
upper 70s and lower 80s.
