The upper levels will feature a trough digging into the eastern half of the country. This will keep us cooler than average through the weekend. There will be no major weather systems riding along this trough, so we stay overall dry through this period, although clouds will increase Sunday along with a slight chance for a few passing showers. Expect temperatures to hover in the mid 30s during the morning and mid to upper 50s during the afternoons Saturday and Sunday. We’ll also see a mostly sunny sky each day.
By next week, another big dome of cold high pressure settles into the Central US. While the really cold air stays to our north, we’ll have another cold snap as we start next week. We won’t see the kind of cold air we saw at the beginning of this week, but we’ll definitely feel the difference between the weekend and the start of the week.
