Abundant sunshine today, becoming windy with showers this weekend

After gusty winds with a front pushing through the area Thursday night, we’re left with clear skies to round out the work week today!

Sunny skies with highs in the mid to upper 60s are expected with breezy northwesterly winds around 10-20 mph.

We’ll enjoy the dry weather today, but clouds will begin to roll back in to the Tri-States overnight tonight into early Saturday morning as our next weather maker approaches.

An area of low pressure will track in from the northwest Saturday morning along with a front that will bring periods of rain to the area Saturday morning. This will be a quick moving system, and the rain should end by the afternoon with skies clearing and gusty winds developing Saturday evening.

Highs Saturday are expected in the upper 60s to lower 70s with southerly winds around 20 to 30 mph. Once the system clears the area, winds will shift out of the northwest again Saturday night around 20-30 mph sustained.

Unseasonably chilly air is forecast Saturday night into early Sunday morning, along with the gusty winds. Wind chills could be a factor early Sunday morning, possibly as low as the upper 20s to lower 30s for feels like temperatures.

On Sunday, partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected through the day with more clouds and showers and thunderstorms developing late Sunday into Monday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible for several days next week with highs in the 50s and 60s and approaching the low 70s by late week.
