High pressure will build in for today with temperatures continuing to run above average.

Early this morning, a few lake effect clouds will linger as northwest winds begin to shift. A stray flurry cannot be ruled out but is unlikely.

Sunshine will increase this morning and most of the afternoon will be clear. Around sunset, some thin clouds will begin to work in ahead of a warm front, but most of the clouds will not arrive until the evening.

No precipitation is expected once skies turn sunny this morning until a few stray rain showers well after midnight tonight.

Winds will be light, coming from the northwest at around 5 mph early before shifting to the west. This afternoon, winds will become nearly calm with variable directions before turning to the south and increasing to near 10 mph this evening.

The strongest winds will come in the predawn hours tomorrow morning, with wind speeds nearing 15 mph and gusts near 30 mph for lowlands and near 35 mph in higher terrain.

Temperatures will be a bit cooler than yesterday with highs mostly in the mid 40s. Evening temperatures will drop to the low 30s, but overnight, temperatures will rise back to the upper 30s.
