Good afternoon! The record high is 88/1953, and it is potentially in jeopardy. We'll watch it all afternoon for you. A clear evening gives way to a partly cloudy sky overnight, and we're quite warm. Tonight's lows and tomorrow's lows aren't too far from where we should be in the afternoon, which are upper 60s. Morning sun rings true Wednesday before cloud cover thickens in the afternoon. The earliest arrival of showers is at the Lake Shore toward or shortly after sunset. Rain settles in Wednesday night and Thursday with the heaviest rain arriving in the afternoon. Thunder is possible. Rain takes a pause Thursday evening into Friday morning.
After being in the middle 80s one more time Wednesday, we struggle to get out of the 60s Thursday. Friday will be a struggle to make it out of the 50s. Showers won't materialize til late Friday, and they're likely in the mix for High School Football Friday night. Our Week #7 games will be the coldest games of the season, to this point. A lake effect regime sets up shop this weekend with lake effect showers Saturday and Sunday. Rain will be heaviest Saturday, more of a scattered variety Sunday. Both weekend days feature highs in the lower 50s. Ugh!
Have a wonderful afternoon! Please join Meteorologist Will Haenni. He's in for Keith and tracking one more unusually warm day followed by rain at 5 p.m.
