Early this morning surface observation reported temperatures
hovering around 70. Infra red satellite indicated overcast skies
with a clear connection to the Gulf as clouds streamed up the
Mississippi Valley. Light southerly winds persisted over the which
was preventing fog from developing but that could change as we
approach sunrise as winds tend to decrease at that time.
Otherwise an upper level high will slowly build back into the region
keeping most areas dry for the holiday weekend. There will be some
isolated to scattered showers around with a thunderstorm possible as
well. With the high building in temperatures will go slightly above
normal with plenty of humidity. Early next week the high will start
to break down allowing several disturbances to move through the
heartland resulting in more numerous storms by mid week. Finally
late in the work week a cold front is poised to move through
bringing dry conditions back to the region for the end of next week
into the weekend. In addition temperatures will begin a cooling
trend after Monday as the cold front approaches from the plains.
