High pressure over the region is bringing ample sunshine this weekend, with breezy conditions as high pressure slides off to the southeast. Temperatures peaked in the upper 60s and will fall back to the low 50s late tonight.

Winds will become southerly Sunday, allowing readings to push toward 80 degrees. High clouds will develop later in the day as low pressure in the Midwest moves slowly east.

A slow-moving storm in the southern Plains will shift slowly northeast, adding moisture and rain showers late Sunday night and Monday. Assorted upper disturbances will bring occasional showers and a few embedded storms through Tuesday. The weather will be warm on the south side of a frontal boundary over the Great Lakes, with highs in the 70s to start the workweek.

A cold front will cross the state Tuesday, probably stalling for a time, as a wave moves along the Ohio River Valley. Showers and some stronger storms are likely until the wave and frontal boundary sag southeast later in the day.

The cold front will push south midweek, bringing cooler and drier weather Wednesday, with some clearing and highs near 60 degrees, 10 degrees below normal. A southern storm will bring clouds and scattered showers later Thursday and Friday.
