    A mix of sun and cloud will start off the day tomorrow before clouds build back in midday with a slight chance of a late day shower in the area.

    Temperatures will rise up to around 22 degrees in the afternoon with humidity making it feel a few degrees warmer.

    Wednesday-Friday

    Increasing cloudiness is also expected on Wednesday with a chance of late day showers.

    There’s a better chance of showers on Thursday with a weak upper low swinging through before some weak upper level ridging moves in for Friday helping to bring back some more sunshine.

    Daytime highs are likely to remain in the low-to-mid 20s through the end of the week.

    Weekend Outlook

    At this point it looks as though there’s a good chance of showers or thunderstorms on Saturday and most models are bringing in an upper low later in the weekend that is likely to bring in some steadier rain Sunday into early next week.

    There’s more discrepancy in temperatures over the weekend with daytime highs at this point likely to be in the mid-20s both days before cooling off into early next week.
