High winds for the next few days

What we’re tracking:

  • Increasing clouds tonight
  • Breezy conditions the next few days
  • Next rain chance

Clouds will begin rolling in through the night tonight. Southerly winds will try to weaken slightly, but not by much. The cloudy skies and sustained southerly winds ranging from 10 to 20 mph will keep temperatures from dropping all too much overnight. Lows will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Breezy conditions vamp up once again for the day tomorrow, but winds will remain out of the south. Sustained winds will range from 15 to 25 mph, but gusts exceeding 30 mph are possible. Even though that southerly flow will try to filter in warmer temperatures once again, the limited sunshine will keep us slightly cooler in spots. From west to east, the cloud cover will try to clear out, with the western counties having the best shot of squeezing out some sunshine, while the eastern counties look to hold onto the cloud cover longer. With that in mind, high temperatures will range anywhere from the mid 60s for those under the mostly cloudy skies for the day, to the low 70s for those who see that additional sunshine.

Even though we’ll see mostly cloudy skies for Sunday, we look to stay mainly dry, aside from the meager chance of some patchy drizzle early Sunday morning. A mix of sun and clouds is anticipated for Monday, with a few light sprinkles and showers possible during the morning hours. Otherwise, the best chance of rain comes as our next cold front pushes through. That front could trigger a line of showers and storms to develop. However, some model guidance is suggesting that the thunderstorm potential will hold off until the line pushes into Missouri. Regardless, be aware of some rain on Monday, with our eastern counties having the best shot of a few thunderstorms pushing through as that line of showers grows and develops.

That cold front will keep things breezy for Tuesday, but also slightly cooler with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Aside from Monday, the weekdays look to be pleasant with highs in the 60s and 70s, and plenty of sunshine.
