Do you know what didn't happen between 2am Monday and early this morning? That's right, the city went 48 hours without rain! A high pressure system was able to hold the stubborn cut-off low from moving back into the area.

That same battle is likely to last through tomorrow and probably into Friday. Showers aren't too far away today and are likely to wet the city this afternoon. Clouds and rain will keep the high to the upper 70s.

Something different is in store for tomorrow: Heat! Some of the hot weather that's been plaguing the Midwest will make it here tomorrow. Look for a steamy day with highs near 90. With the heat and humidity there will, of course, be a chance of a shower or thunderstorm.

The forecasts are pretty varied for Friday and the weekend, in all cases, however they call for more sun than clouds. The Weather Channel says we'll cool to the low to mid 80s. The Weather Service is calling for the low 90s on Friday and a sunny, pleasant weekend. AccuWeather keeps things in the upper 80s through Sunday.
