TODAY: Ongoing showers continue for many throughout the morning, with most of the rainfall coming south of I-70. Rainfall will begin to dry up by the early afternoon. Some may pick up nearly an inch of rain from this first round, before more storms tonight. The rain keeps us cool today. Expect upper 50s to low 60s across the region.
TONIGHT: Showers and storms return after 10 p.m. There is some potential for an isolated strong storm with this round. The main threat would be damaging wind near the lake and I-44, but the severe threat is looking increasingly low. Our main concern will be with the nearly 2 inches of rain we see in some places over the next 36 hours.
EXTENDED: Showers are slowly leaving Friday morning, but clouds will stay all day, keeping us close to that 60 degree mark yet again. Warmth returns Saturday, with temperatures just approaching 70 under mostly sunny skies. We'll add better south flow on Sunday, which should at least get us into the upper 70s, with a great shot at cracking 80. Next week will see a lot of warmth and sunshine, but we will also have just enough moisture and instability each day to lead to almost daily chances for pop up storms. This will still leave overall dry conditions throughout next week, with no big chance for rain centering on any one day for now. Temperatures are getting close to 90 by Tuesday.
