FIRST ALERT FORECAST: More clouds to finish out the weekend...

Low clouds were the story for most of us today, keeping us much cooler than the upper 60s we've experienced all week long. Many spots only reached the 50s this afternoon, outside of the few counties that were able to reach the 60s under clearing skies.

Winds will be shifting back out of the south ahead of our next cold front which will keep mainly cloudy skies over the area through the rest of the weekend. Expect morning lows in the upper 40s tomorrow morning, but temperatures into the afternoon hours will be on the increase. Highs will reach the mid-upper 60s Sunday afternoon, 70s by Monday.

Although we could see a stray shower or two east of I-55 tomorrow, better chances will arrive with our sluggish cold front Monday-Wednesday. In terms of coverage, Tuesday does look like the rainiest day in our 7-day forecast, and data continues to disagree on a disturbance that may or may not keep rain in the forecast through the day Wednesday.

Just anticipate higher rain chances and lower temperatures as we get beyond Monday afternoon!
