From Bleh To Beautiful In A Few Days

It's not a meteorological term but 'bleh' may be the best way to describe our weather through Thursday. Cool with cloudy skies, occasional showers and a strengthening wind off the lake. Hang in there because the payoff is a fantastic Friday and sensational Saturday.

The hourly forecast keeps our highs fixed in the 50s through Thursday. Winds pick up later this afternoon with gusts over 30 that continue through tomorrow evening. The highest threat of rain will be today through early Thursday then clearing begins for Friday with some sunshine Saturday too. The warm up begins on Friday with highs near 60 but a bigger warm up is in store for Saturday.

The sunshine on Saturday combined with a west wind will push our highs into the lower 70s. Most of Saturday should stay dry but I do see indications of a spotty shower possibly by the evening. It will be the warmest day in nearly three weeks in a month that is nearly a half a degree cooler than average overall.

Looking long range, both the 6-10 and 8-14 day temperature probability forecast has us outlooked for below average temperatures overall from May 4th through the 12th. This pattern kicked in earlier this month and doesn't show signs of significant change at least for the next few weeks.

Here is my 7 day forecast:

Today: Cloudy, on & off rain, becoming breezy High: 58 (falling temps late)

Thursday: Cloudy, on & off showers, windy & cooler Low: 45 High: 51

Friday: Partly to mostly sunny Low: 42 High: 60 (52 Lakefront)

Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny, warmer, shower late? Low: 47 High: 73

Sunday: Shower possible early, partly to mostly cloudy Low: 54 High: 66 (58 Lakeside)

Monday: Partly to mostly sunny Low: 48 High: 60 (51 Lakefront)

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, pm sct. showers Low: 41 High: 59 (54 Lakefront)
