Clouds moved in and the humidity soared Thursday afternoon. The culprit? A warm front that will send thundery downpours through the region Thursday night. The severe weather risk is low, but localized flooding and brief gusty winds are possible overnight.
On Friday, the rain is less widespread, but an approaching cold front should trigger a quick line of thunderstorms that could have locally strong winds. Even without rain, it'll be a breezy day with winds out of the southwest at 15-20 mph. Gusts could reach 30 mph, especially near the lakeshores.
A few showers are possible Saturday, but Sunday looks fantastic. No washouts, but if you're looking for a time to be outside, the second half of this weekend is it.
The weather still looks great for the solar eclipse Monday afternoon. It'll be a warm day with highs in the mid 80s. Interestingly, the temperature may drop a few degrees as the moon blocks the sun for a few minutes during the eclipse.
