StormTeam 8 Forecast:  High 76° / Low 52°... Clouds thicken tonight and rain moves in Sunday. Much cooler next week.

Updated Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 6:50 PM...

It was another beautiful day across the region with lots of sunshine and well above average temperatures. Highs today topped out in the low to mid 70s.

Clouds have been gradually building in this afternoon and evening, and will continue to thicken overnight as a storm system approaches. There will be a slight chance of rain in our western communities around midnight, but most will remain dry until Sunday. Lows will be in the upper 40s to low 50s.

As the storm system moves in closer from the west, we'll see a chance of on and off showers Sunday morning. A second wave of moisture will move in during the afternoon bringing a steadier rain to the region. A few rumbles of thunder will also be possible. Highs tomorrow will be in the low to mid 60s.

Looking Ahead... The rain will taper off Sunday night from west to east.

We'll see some clearing Monday, but as the system continues to slowly head into the Great Lakes, there will still be a slight chance of showers. Winds will pick up out of the north and it will be much cooler. Highs Monday will only be in the low 50s.

Tuesday will be similar to Monday with a slight chance of showers and highs in the low 50s.

Wednesday through the end of the week and next weekend look dry at this point, but continued cool with temperatures in the 50s for highs.

Enjoy your night!-Michelle Poedel
