Partly cloudy and pleasant today and tomorrow. Showers late Wed/Thurs. Cooler weekend.
An area of low pressure to our southeast, currently centered in Tennessee, is swirling a large area of clouds stretching through parts of Iowa and Wisconsin. Eventually these will move to the east and we will have even more sunshine to enjoy, but you may see a few clouds this morning as well as scattered about later today. Temps should stay slightly above normal for a few days before turning colder late in the week. And we’ve finally reached the point in spring where I start feeling (a little) guilty for not having mowed my lawn yet. Well it is May!
