Dry spell could be dented by rain on Friday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

THURSDAY NIGHT:  The long lasting high pressure system bringing dry conditions to the middle of the nation will be with us one more night. Thursday night should be clear to partly cloudy. The wind will be S 5-10 mph. Low temps will be 48-53.

FRIDAY:  Clouds will increase as a low pressure system from Montana enters our picture in the afternoon. That will lead to a 30% chance for rain in the afternoon and a 50% shot at thunderstorms in the evening. The wind will be SE 5-15 mph. High temps will again be near 75 inland with 60-70 more likely lakeside.

WEEKEND:  Saturday and Sunday both get 40-60% shower and thunderstorm chances. The Saturday wind will be SSE 5-15 mph. The Sunday wind will be SSW 5-15 mph. As usual, high temps will be in the 70's inland but only 60's by Lake Superior. Low temps will be in the 50's.

MEMORIAL DAY: Some showers and thunderstorms will linger for part of the morning, but the sky should clear in the afternoon. The wind will be W 5-15 mph. Highs will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s.

NEXT WEEK:  Sunshine returns Tuesday through Thursday with a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky. Another chance of rain could move in towards next weekend. Highs will remain in the 70s during the work week but may fall by the weekend.
