Skies have been clearing from the morning clouds and fog we saw today. Skies will clear out completely as we move into the evening hours as the front passes through. On the back side of the front, drier air has arrived to locations west of I-55 already, and we will see the drier air filter in overnight. We will not see the full impacts tonight thanks to the moisture hanging around a little longer, but overnight lows will drop to a degree or two either side of 60.
Thursday through Saturday will see high pressure reassert control over the area, leading to sunny skies and seasonal to slightly above normal readings for highs. High pressure will start to weaken as we move through Sunday with the advance of our next cold front towards the area.
The front will arrive late Sunday into Monday, and that is where the forecast becomes more challenging. Two solutions look possible: 1) the cold front stalls over us, meaning an isolated shower or storm Monday through at least Wednesday or 2) the cold front washes out and little to no rain is expected Monday through Wednesday. For now, I am going to go with option 2 as I think we will see enough moisture in place to touch off isolated showers on Monday, but as of now, I do not think rain each day next week looks likely. We will continue to monitor the front and see what happens as we get closer.
