Today started off nice with some sunshine boosting temperatures into the 60s; however, an approaching front did bring showers to the region this afternoon which knocked the mercury back into the 50s. We'll have showers and a stray thunderstorm early tonight as this front pushes through the region. Behind the front, clouds will break for a while later tonight into early Saturday. Temperatures will drop into the 40s. A second cold front will bring scattered showers along with a gusty wind during the day Saturday. There will be some breaks of sunshine between the showers which will help push temperatures to near or above 60 in spots, but otherwise, most of the day will be windy and cool with temperatures bouncing in the 50s. The sky will clear Saturday night and will have a mix of sun and clouds on Sunday. It will be a cool day despite some sunshine with highs in the 50s. A slow moving upper-level low pressure system sitting in the middle of the nation will then dominate our weather as we head into next week. Monday will start off with a mix of clouds and sunshine but the upper level low will start to throw moisture to our region and showers are possible during the afternoon. Tuesday looks quite wet, windy and cool with rain and then slowly the rain will taper to scattered showers by the end of next week. It will be cool each day with highs in the 50s to near 60. Though things could change if this system moves faster or slowly.
