Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 6:22PM
Any significant cold fronts stay well to our west for the next few days. Even so, a weakening low lifting to our north will bring showers into the region late tonight, lasting through the day on Sunday. A couple thundershowers are possible. The light south winds will also continue to bring smoke into the region from the fires along the escarpment. We expect more clouds than sun on Monday, and there is the smallest chance of a shower. Shower chances increase a bit on Tuesday, followed by a dry and warm Wednesday.

There will be plenty of weather systems moving across the country over the next several days, but to borrow a term from baseball, most of the pitches will be high and outside. By that, I mean most of the weather systems will lift well to our north.
The first errant system will be the one that affects us this weekend. It will lift north into IL by Sunday morning. It is expected to bring some showers and maybe even a thundershower very late tonight and Sunday. But we are not looking at anything approaching a widespread, soaking rain. Smoke from the wildfires along the escarpment will waft through at times tonight.
Monday will be more humid, and there may be some valley fog in the morning, but we are only looking at a very small chance of showers during the day. The next low that comes our way doesn’t even make it to the plate as it falls apart to our west early on Tuesday. It’ll spread in a few more showers and thundershowers, but they should be easily dodged.
We dry a little more on Wednesday and temperatures should perk up to well above normal readings. The Magic Eight Ball always gets a little fuzzy that far out, but there’s a good chance the week will end on an unsettled/wet note as a back door front is expected to slide in on Thursday.
