A slow moving cold front dropping southward across the state has given us lots of clouds and a little bit of rain this Friday. The overcast skies and a slight easterly breeze will keep this afternoon's high to the lower 70s, breaking our eleven-day streak of warmer than average temperature. So far the rain has been of the drizzly variety but there is a slight chance we could see a shower or two this afternoon as a minor disturbance passes overhead.
If you want to do something outside this weekend do it tomorrow, as Saturday's weather promises to be much more pleasant than Sunday's. Look for a high somewhere around 80 tomorrow under a mix of sun and clouds. Once again there will be a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms starting in the afternoon.
A low passing over the Great Lakes will drag all sorts of warm, humid and unstable air our way on Sunday. As the cold front trailing that low approaches the city on Sunday afternoon it is likely to produce an outbreak of showers and thunderstorms. Some of those thunderstorms have the potential to be severe, with gusty winds and torrential rains that could produce flash flooding. Sunday's high will probably be in the mid 70s.
The severe weather and rain threat will end once the front passes late Sunday night. Monday should be mostly sunny and dry with a high near 80.
