Campus Weather Forecast

Discussion: A low-pressure system tracking south of the Great Lakes will give the region scattered rain showers through the overnight period and into the early hours Friday. Brief, weak upper-level ridging will take place during the second half of our Friday into Saturday, bringing drier weather with it. Saturday appears to be the warmest day of the forecast period as the winds shift to the east, which will not allow the cooler air to fully usher in. This is short lived, however, as a shortwave trough moves into the area Saturday night into Sunday, shifting our winds back to the north, and cooling our temperatures. Also in this time, another low-pressure system tracks just to the south of the Great Lakes region, giving us more scattered rain showers.
