Forecast: Cool, Pleasant Weekend With Showers Saturday Night

This article is more than 4 years old.

With little exception, it’s been a very dry spring. Although there was some rain late this past weekend and again on Tuesday, overall things have been quite dry.

The tranquil weather is going to continue this weekend, with a minor interruption Saturday night. This means you can go ahead and make your plans for the weekend without the fear of getting wet.

The showers Saturday night could arrive a late in the afternoon Saturday, but generally, if the showers did occur they would fall overnight.

Of course, you probably noticed how cool it was on Thursday — and that breeze made it feel even colder. Today is another cool day, and though it will still be breezy, there won't be as much wind. Temperatures will reach around 70 in the afternoon after a cool start.

Saturday and Sunday are both warmer with highs on both Saturday and Sunday reaching the 70s. However, after those possible showers Saturday night, some cooler air will move into the region, making for another breezy afternoon Sunday.

If I had to pick the best day of the weekend I would chose Saturday, because there will be a blustery breeze in the afternoon on Sunday.

Amazingly, I don’t see any chance of showers next week. This could last into next weekend, but that’s a long ways off. What is apparent is there won’t be any major heat for the next week, in spite of the fact 90s will be prevalent for several days in the Midwest. Have a great weekend.
