There is finally a break in this wet weather pattern on the way!

Thursday, July 6, 2017 –

Good Evening.  Once again today we have see scattered showers and thunderstorms across the region with locally heavy rainfall.  We will keep the threat of showers and storms for about another day and a half before we see a weather pattern change.

Take a look at this 1 KM Visible Satellite Imagery from GOES 16 and College of DuPage.  You can see the storms across our area this afternoon.

The good news, temperatures will stay pleasant through the weekend.

We keep a chance of showers and thunderstorms in our forecast tonight through early Friday morning.  Take a look at the Storm Team Forecast Maps.

8 PM Tonight – Watching a line of showers and storms moving in from the west. Some storms could produce damaging winds across the region for the next 1 to 2 hours.

Midnight – We keep the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms across the area.

5 AM Friday – Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible.

10 AM Friday – We keep the chance of scattered showers with some locally heavy rainfall possible.

8 PM Friday – Variable cloudy skies with eyes focused to our northwest as a cold front moves towards the region with another round of showers and thunderstorms.

We do have a marginal risk for a few strong storms both tonight and Friday.  The biggest weather threat would be for damaging winds and hail along with locally heavy rainfall.

Here is the good news.  A cold front will push through the region Saturday and this will take the clouds and moisture to our south late Saturday into Sunday.  We could see a few scattered showers and storms early Saturday as the front pushes through the area.

Here is a look at the Storm Team 11 Forecast Maps:

8 PM Friday – Variable cloudy skies are forecast fort he region.  Storms will form to our northwest.

Noon Saturday – The front moves through with a chance of showers and storms early in the day.

6 PM Saturday – The front moves south with a drier air mass moving into the region Saturday night.

Noon Sunday- High pressure will bring plenty of sunshine and mild, dry air!

Scattered showers and storms along with increasing temperatures are on the way next week.

Have a great night!
