A warm front is moving in, bringing more clouds and a better chance for scattered showers and an occasional T'storm into the forecast today. We'll see partly to mostly cloudy skies, it will not be a washout and not everyone will see rain. It will be a warm day with highs in the upper 80s at the lakefront and close to 90 degrees inland, but it will feel a little sticky as the dew points will be higher today. Scattered shower chances continue tonight with humid and warm conditions.
There will be more sunshine on Monday but temperatures jump back into the mid to upper 90s. There will not be a lake breeze to help cool you down and with the humidity it will feel more like 95-100 degrees. A warm wind from the WSW at 10-15mph may help a little but thankfully we only have to deal with this heat for one day.
The winds switch to being from the northeast Monday night, bringing in cooler air for Tuesday but highs will still be above average. There are chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms from Tuesday through Friday. Not all locations will see the much needed rain every day but the chance for rain is much higher and more frequent than our repeated dry pattern we've been stuck in. Temperatures will stay in the low 80s through next weekend.
