A low pressure system over Montana will move through the Northern Plains with a cold front, this weekend. This same low and cold front will stall out over the Great Lakes region & Midwest through the beginning of the work week and bring our area continued, daily rain chances.  In advance of this system, tonight & Saturday will bring continued warm temps with off/on scattered showers & thunderstorms. Saturday night, expect increasing clouds followed by rising rain chances. Sunday & Monday will be our next chance for significant rain with some thunderstorms potentially becoming severe. Temperatures will fall considerably with daytime highs in the 70s & 60s through the rest of the 7day planner. Labor Day will bring unseasonably cool temps with scattered rain & thunderstorms, a slight risk for severe weather and a threat of flash flooding. In the wake of this system, expect more sunshine with in & out clouds, a light to moderate wind and lower rain chances.
