While it's currently very nice throughout the viewing area, light cloud cover is expected by your lunch hour with scattered rainfall following only a short time later. A weak low tracking southeastward across Lake Michigan will usher in more upper level moisture as the day progresses. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected as early as 2:00 pm and may continue as lingering and isolated rainfall as late as midnight. Afternoon high temperatures will be slightly cooler today thanks to that passing pressure system. We'll drop to the mid to low 80s this afternoon with a much cooler Saturday on the way; it looks like the mercury may only top out at 74° tomorrow. We may see some spotty showers and possibly a few thunderstorms throughout your Saturday morning and early afternoon, but the remainder of your weekend and even the beginning of your next work week look drier. Afternoon temperatures will begin to bounce back on Sunday with a high of 79°. We'll be back into the 80s by Tuesday and your 4th of July holiday is looking a little toasty, afternoon highs next Thursday will be in the upper 80s.
