Cool Friday showers
The storm system we've been tracking all week long as it's been drifting in from the west is now planted directly overhead, bringing thick clouds and steady, cool rain to our area. We'll have light rain through most of the morning with scattered showers continuing to linger in the area throughout the afternoon on the backside of the storm system as it begins to drift into northeast Wisconsin. High temperatures will be in the mid-50s with light south winds that will turn to the west, becoming a bit breezy in the afternoon. Shower chances will taper off by 6:00 this evening with drier, colder weather tonight with lows overnight in the lower 40s.
Clouds will hang around for Saturday with a brisk northwest breeze adding a chill to the air as temperatures only reach the lower 50s making it the coolest day since the first of the month. A storm system to our south will bring rain chances to much of the area for the midday and afternoon hours. Right now, it looks like the best chances for rain will be from Rochester to the east and southeast starting around 11:00 AM and continuing until late Saturday night.
Bright and mild Sunday
Clouds will gradually clear off during the morning hours Sunday and the afternoon looks bright and somewhat mild with high temperatures in the lower 60s. A northwest breeze occasionally reaching 15 miles per hour will keep things feeling just a bit cooler, however.
