WEATHER

Low pressure traveling through the Great Lakes will lift a warm front through the region. Convection looks likely in the afternoon but models are having a difficult time resolving the storm locations. The storms that do develop could be real soakers. High temperature in the mid-80s. Winds south at 5-8 mph. Rainfall less than 0.1 of an inch with higher amounts where storms occur.
