TODAY: A Weather Alert Day is in effect overnight Saturday into Sunday for the threat of severe thunderstorms and heavy rain. We stay mostly cloudy with a chance for widely scattered showers and a few storms through the morning. Highs in the 70s to the southwest and the mid-60s elsewhere. Conditions clear up for the afternoon before storms late.
TONIGHT: Severe storms will move into the area from the northwest just around midnight, and continue to move through overnight. Damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph are possible as storms first enter the area, but they weaken as sunrise approaches. Isolated areas of heavy rainfall are likely with 1-2" possible along I-70.
EXTENDED: Showers exit much of the area before noon on Sunday, leaving us cool and partly to mostly cloudy on Mother's Day. We'll see highs in the lower 60s, and the trend stays cooler than normal into next week with a Canadian high-pressure diving south across the Great Lakes. This will keep us in the low 60s all week with lows in the low to mid-40s. The front stays to our south Monday into Tuesday, but another disturbance approaching from the west on Tuesday could bring the threat of more rain and a few storms through Wednesday. Temperatures warm into the mid-60s by the end of next week.
