Partly cloudy skies are expected to stick around through the evening hours as temperatures slowly slide back into the 70s around sunset, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said.

Lower humidity will make for a comfortable evening. Clouds will be on the increase through the night.

“There will be the chance for a few showers by morning. Temperatures in the morning will be in the lower 60s,” Elwell said.

Saturday: Rain and a few thunderstorms will develop and linger into the evening hours. A few storms could become marginally strong or severe with gusty winds and some hail. The greater severe threat will be mainly south of Interstate 70. Highs will reach into the middle 70s.

Sunday: Skies will remain mostly cloudy with a few passing showers. It will not be a washout but keep the rain gear handy, especially during the afternoon. Highs will top out in the middle 70s.

Monday: A mix of sun and clouds is anticipated as we start the new workweek. A few passing showers will be possible, mainly during the afternoon. Highs will be back in the upper 70s.

Tuesday: Clouds will break for more sunshine with slightly cooler, more pleasant temperatures in the middle 70s.

Wednesday: Skies will become mostly sunny. It will be pleasant with highs in the middle 70s.
