Weather for the work week

Storm Center 7 Chief Meterologist takes a look at the week's weather.

An isolated shower or two is most likely to the east through early evening, then decreasing clouds the rest of the evening. Temperatures will fall into the 70s after sunset. Then the upper 60s by sunrise with some spotty fog possible once again.

For Tuesday, we'll get a good deal of sun in the morning, then more clouds again in the afternoon, similar to today. We should see a few showers and thunderstorms later in the day well north of I-70. The south will stay dry. Showers and storms will continue into evening north of I-70, but sunset should bring their demise. Some rain may linger to midnight at the latest. Daytime highs will be in the upper 80s and then down to 70 by Wednesday morning.

Midweek, a front will be near I-70 at sunrise, and slowly drift southward. This will mean the best chance for showers and storms will be I-70 south, especially in the afternoon. By the end of the day they might be south of the area. Afternoon highs will be in the mid 80s for most.

On Thursday, expect a slight drop in humidity, which will be welcome behind that front. Partly cloudy skies will be with us all day and no rain. With highs in the lower 80s it should feel pretty nice compared to right now.

To wrap up the work week, Friday looks dry and still fairly comfortable. Highs will be in the mid 80s with sun giving way to some late clouds. A warm front moves through Friday night, although there is some uncertainty to timing. If it is faster we run the risk of a few showers or thunderstorms Friday by midnight. Hopefully they will be later and not interfere with any football games.

At this point, the weekend looks like this:

Saturday: With the warm front to our north we will be warmer and more humid. High are expected to be back in the mid to upper 80s. A few showers and thunderstorms are probably going to pop up in the afternoon.

Sunday: This looks to be a wet day as a front will move in and stall. Could see showers and storms much of the day.
