Forecast Discussion

A high pressure system stays directly over the Midwest, allowing for clouds to clear as the week moves forward. Consistent temperatures will be observed as well, being mid-60's during the day, which 50's at night. We will be affected by a slightly increased temperature gradient associated with a cyclonic system over the Hudson Bay, bringing slight winds to the area around Tuesday night. A small low, originating from western Canada, will reach the Midwest around Thursday, bring a small amount of precipitation with an it's associated warm front. Just behind the precipitation will be a time of warmer temperatures brought in from the same cyclonic entity. Not predicted to be very organized, the low will soon pass, with another high pressure system following by the weekend.
