Cloud cover will begin to increase from the west later Saturday as a weakening cold front approaches from the west. The front is expected to move across the area Saturday night, although recent model trends continues to reflect limited forcing and moisture, warranting only low chance/slight chance pops with a max of a few hundredths of rainfall. Lows tonight will drop into the low to upper 30s. Highs tomorrow will range from the low to mid 60s inland to only the mid/upper 50s near the lake.
