Regional Weather Summary

310 PM CDT Fri Aug 29 2014
The area was greeted with patchy fog and temperatures in the low 70s
early this morning. Aside from a few very isolated showers the area
has remained dry today with temperatures heating up to around 90
degrees as of 3pm. Drier air aloft has also mixed down to the
surface with dewpoints in the mid to upper 60s across most of the
area which is welcome relief after what we have experienced the last
10 days or so.
Rain chances increase later tonight into this weekend as a
disturbance currently in the central plains lifts northeastward
toward the great lakes and allows ample amounts of gulf moisture to
be transported into our area. This translates into likely chances of
showers and thunderstorms especially Saturday and Saturday night
with heavy rain amounts possible. The region begins to dry out as we
head later into the day on Sunday and Labor Day although scattered
rain chances will still exist.
Temperatures will be cooler this weekend with more cloud cover and
rain around with highs in the low to mid 80s but humidity levels
will rise once again creating a muggy feel for the holiday weekend.
By early next week looks like we could be flirting with 90 degrees
once again. Summer heat took awhile to grip our area but sure seems
like now that it has it`s not going away quietly.
