In the wake of a cold front Wednesday that ended a string of four straight days in the 70s, temperatures are back on the chilly side.

Morning clouds cleared out and sunshine is back. High temperatures will reach the mid-50s, about five degrees below normal. Patchy clouds will linger into the overnight hours, as readings dip into the upper 30s toward daybreak

High pressure will move east across the Great Lakes on Friday, with a dry northeasterly flow and another great Football Friday Nite. The wind will shift to a southerly direction on Saturday, as the fair-weather system drifts farther east. High temperatures on Saturday will reach the seasonal mid-60s.

A developing storm over the Southern Plains will tap Gulf moisture over the weekend, spreading rain northward on Sunday into the Ohio Valley. Showers will arrive toward evening and linger on Monday. Temperatures will continue to top out in the low to mid-60s early next week, warming to near 70 midweek.
