Tracking slim chances for rain over the weekend

TODAY: Much like Thursday, Friday is shaping up sunny and warm. Expect highs in the mid-80s, with a 5-10 mph breeze out of the southeast.

TONIGHT: Some high clouds will approach tonight, but have little impact on the forecast.

EXTENDED: Saturday starts cool again, in the low 60s, and other than some high cloud cover, skies stay mostly clear. However, the clouds are a sign that rain chances are building. As a weak low moves in from the gulf, it will bring moisture in from the south on Saturday. We likely won't see it result in a chance for rain this far north, but it may pop an isolated storm near I-44 Saturday evening. Otherwise, this moisture will aide a cold front that is set up to arrive Saturday night from the northwest. This will result in a slight chance for showers and storms overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. Rainfall won't likely be uniform areawide, with many to the south of I-70 struggling to see much rain at all. Generally less than a quarter of an inch is expected in most places, with isolated higher amounts still coming in shy of half an inch. No severe weather is anticipated with this system. Behind this, we will all feel noticeably cooler, with lows in the 50s, and highs in the 70s Sunday and Monday. A warmup then ensues, and we climb into the upper 80s by midweek.
