Rain finally fell Friday night into Saturday morning as a cold front moved through the Midwest. There were some pockets of heavy rain, with many areas picking up a half an inch to an inch of rain:
Now this rain won't solve the drought, but will at least be beneficial as many farmers are looking toward harvest. Sunday will be a dry day as cooler, drier air has moved in behind that cold front. Temperatures will be held to the low 80s:
Humidity will be lower as well so it will feel more comfortable as a result:
That humidity goes right back up on Monday, though:
Not only will it feel more humid, but it's an indication of more moisture in the atmosphere and more chances for rain. There will be the chance for a few showers and storms Friday morning:
And another chance in the evening:
Next week is likely going to be active in the Midwest, but the question is where... it will all be highly dependent on where a warm front sets up.
Near the front it will be stormy and to the south it will be very hot! So there will be quite a difference between the north side and the south side and there's still a placement issue to figure out. We certainty could use the rain!
