236 AM EDT Fri Jul 19 2024 SYNOPSIS... Sprawling high pressure centered near Chicago will gradually build over our region through Saturday. This will provide us with beautiful weather and comfortable conditions through at least the first half of the weekend, then a weak moisture starved cold front will fall apart over our region on Sunday. Our next chance for widespread shower activity will come Tuesday and Wednesday of next week when mid summer humidity will return. Area Forecast Discussion
