There is no denying this has been a spectacular week of weather so far and it will continue for two more days as high pressure remains in control. The high has shifted to our south which sets up a southwest flow. This has brought on the moderating temperatures, most noticeable in the afternoon, and this trend continues into the weekend.
Friday and Saturday will be sunny again, although clouds will begin to creep in during Saturday, especially during the afternoon hours. Each day will see afternoon highs well into the 70s, with some touching the low 80s Friday. Friday night may see some low clouds and patchy fog developing. It will be pleasantly cool. Lows in the low to mid 50s.
A cold front approaches Saturday and by Saturday night clouds will take over the skies with a few showers possible. The clouds and showers are expected to linger into Sunday morning as the front moves through and shifts east of greater Springfield. Generally, Sunday will be a mostly cloudy day and cooler, highs in the upper 60s to 70 degrees. There is a hint that a wave of low pressure ripples along the front to our south and if so it may enhance the shower activity on Sunday. Right now it does not appear that Sunday would be a wash out.
Skies become partly cloudy by Sunday night. Cooler, lows in the mid to upper 40s.
High pressure returns early in the week with another delightful stretch of weather shaping up as we start the new work week. Partly cloudy skies in general, highs near 70 Monday and overnight lows in the upper 40s to 50 degrees Monday night.
Storminess to our south, over the Southeastern States, should be suppressed to our south as strong high pressure dominates in the Northeast.
