Sunny with mild temperatures today; a chance of rain tonight and tomorrow

Today will be sunny with highs in the mid-50s in the area, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.

The Ohio State-Michigan game today will kick at off at noon in Columbus under similar weather. Mid-and high-level clouds will begin to increase from the southwest late this afternoon, NWS said.

Conditions will be relatively dry throughout the day today, but a chance of showers develops around 1 a.m. Sunday.

The lows will dip into the lower 40s overnight.

Sunday will be wet and windy, with a 100% chance of rain showers that could produce a quarter to half an inch of rain. Stray thunderstorms could be a possibility as well.

Breezy conditions are expected to accompany the precipitation, so it is a great idea to tie down those holiday decorations. Wind gusts Sunday will likely range consistently from 13 to 20 mph and could reach as high as 40 mph at times.

The high Sunday will be near 57 degrees.

A slight chance of showers is predicted before 10 p.m. Sunday night, which otherwise will be mostly cloudy. The overnight low temperature will fall around 38 degrees. Some gusts of winds may occur from 9 to 16 mph and may go up to 29 mph.

Cooler air arrives Monday, but partly sunny skies bring plentiful sunlight to all. A high in the upper-40s will accompany the pleasant but mild conditions. Secondary weather systems from Sunday night into Monday may bring a very slight chance of rain that could persist into Monday morning, NWS said.

Monday night will be partly cloudy with temperatures falling into the lower to mid-30s.

The Tuesday forecast also calls for partly sunny skies with highs reaching the mid-50s. Rain showers are possible Tuesday night into early Wednesday with lows falling in the mid-40s.

The rest of the week may see additional rain showers, and temperatures dropping even lower.
