PM Update: Showers possible Thursday
Clouds thicken ahead of cold front
As Dan Stillman alluded to this morning, cloud cover was largely dependent on location during much of the day -- sunnier north and east and cloudier south and west. Temperatures topped out mainly in the mid-and-upper 50s, and the whole area is now trending cloudy as a storm system to the west approaches the area. Most spots should stay dry through midnight before a slight risk of showers approaches after.
Through Tonight: We'll be cloudy overnight with an increasing risk of showers after midnight headed toward sunrise. Someone in the western suburbs could see a shower prior to midnight, but it will be isolated. Even after midnight, most rain that falls should be light and scattered. Thickening clouds will keep us from getting too chilly -- lows in the upper 40s to around 50.
Tomorrow (Thursday): It will be cloudy on Thursday with a chance of isolated to scattered showers through midday before odds of steadier rain rise as a cold front approaches. A solid line of showers, with perhaps a rumble of thunder, is possible with the frontal passage during the afternoon or evening (it could linger into the overnight). Highs will be close to average or a bit above, reaching the upper 50s and low 60s.
