Busy weekend ahead; no shortage of weather to discuss

Mother Nature has given us a little bit of a break as we work into the weekend.  High pressure has taken over with origins from Canada.  This is why it's cooler and drier.  In fact highs might stay in the 60s to lower 70s today.  I do see milder changes ahead with temperatures in the 80s on Saturday. 

The chance for storms will increase Saturday evening and night with a cold front moving in from the Upper Midwest.  Some of the storms could be on the stronger side.  There's even a "slight risk" for severe weather. 

Heavier rains are possible with these storms too.  Of course this is the last thing the swollen rivers in our area need.  As it stands now, the Fox River in Burlington is around 15 feet and expected to be below flood stage by early Thursday morning.  In New Munster, the stage is above 17 feet. It's forecast to drop about a half foot in the next day. 

One other feature to watch out for is happening Sunday.  We're behind a front and the winds switch to the north and east.  This could impact the Air and Water Show in Milwaukee with fog and low clouds.  Hopefully the show will still go on!  Of course the CBS58 Ready Weather team is watching this for you.  Enjoy the weekend.
