The winds of change

We’re trading in our summer-like weather for springtime rains today.

Winds will persist throughout the day, gusting as high as 30 mph at times. As a low pressure system pushes northward through the Midwest, expect periods of rain to arrive here this afternoon. Some heavy rain will be possible. There’s a chance we could hear a few rumbles of thunder, but no severe weather is expected. Highs will only climb into the mid-60s thanks the clouds and rain. Widespread rain continues into this evening before becoming more scattered overnight. Rain gauge totals will be on the order of 0.5″-1″ through Monday morning.

The same storm that will bring us the rain today will slowly exit the Midwest on Monday, keeping skies mostly cloudy here for the start of the work week. Scattered showers will be possible throughout the day, with a few rounds of steady rain likely. Highs will top off in the lower 60s. The cool trend continues with highs only in the 50s for the remainder of the week.
