220 PM CDT Fri Apr 20 2018

...Quiet Spring Weekend...

.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will be the dominant weather
feature through the weekend. Although we will see some increase in
cloud cover mainly along and south of I-90, we will remain mainly
precipitation-free with warming temperatures to near normal levels
in the middle 50s to lower 60s. RH values through the weeknight are
expected to be in the 30 to 40 percent range with light winds
generally less than 10 mph. Monday looks dry and seasonably mild as
well with the next chance of precipitation moving in Tuesday in the
form of rain showers.
