Southerly wind flow has returned and as a result we're seeing temperatures that have drastically rebounded from earlier this week. It's also causing an influx of moisture into the region and as an upper level disturbance passes overhead today, we're looking at showers this evening and into the overnight hours. Hopefully the rain will help clear the air of some of the smoke from the Table Rock fire.
Other than an early morning leftover shower, Saturday should see precipitation hold off for the most part until the overnight hours. The clouds will still be around though and temps will be much milder than in recent days.
Our next cold front moves through early Monday. Ahead of it, we're looking at a pretty dreary day with showers beginning in the early afternoon on Sunday. Heavier rain arrives at night.
Once the front passes through during the early morning hours on Monday, conditions should begin to improve rapidly. Precipitation should end by mid-morning and we will even see some sunshine by the afternoon. The colder air will begin to filter in during the afternoon. The dropoff won't be as sharp as this past Tuesday, but it will be significant.
Canadian high pressure will be to our west on Tuesday, meaning a chilly day is in store, even with bluebird skies. That high will gradually drift east through the end of the work week. Temps will moderate a few degrees each day through Friday but they'll still be on the cool side.
