The low pressure area that ushered in that nasty storm yesterday has been pushed southward by the high pressure entering the area for the next two to three days. The outlook for the today and Wednesday look wonderful.

Today, sunny less humid with a high of 79 in the Highland area 75 near the lake and 83 as you head inland. A nice breeze that will pick up from time to time as the pressure changes will be out of the north clocking in at 5-10 mph with an occasional gust of 15 mph.  Although today will be nice, please use caution near the beach. A swim advisory in effect for the south Lake Michigan shoreline which includes the Chicago area.

Tonight a nice clear and relatively cool night. Good windows open sleeping weather with a temp of 59. A nice breeze out of the north northeast at 5-10 mph. Nice sitting out on the patio doing what it is that you do on that patio, weather. Just behave yourself, your nosey nextdoor neighbor will be watching.

Wednesday, just like today, sunny with a high of 78 in beautiful downtown Highland cooler near the lake and 81 inland.

Wednesday night, mostly clear, with a low around 61. Northeast wind around 5 mph becoming southeast after midnight. A low pressure area will start approaching the area with indications for some approaching weather will be evident.

Thursday, mostly sunny, with a high near 81. South wind 5 to 10 mph. Low pressure will enter the Chicago area bringing a slight risk of rain and thunderstorms.
Thursday night, a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 68. Rain and thunderstorms likely overnight into Friday morning.
Friday, a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 83. Low pressure firmly over the area bring an increased risk of rain and thunderstorms.
Saturday a chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 78. A high pressure front will start approaching the area, clearing out the weather as we usher in a beautiful Sunday.
So if this is not a wicked thing to happen. Give us two possibly three beautiful days in the middle of the work week. It’s just plain torture to sit inside while all this beautiful weather is happening outside. Unless you play hooky, or are retired or are not working. Then lucky lucky you. You better not be sitting inside catching up on the past episodes of Westworld. Get up go for a hike.
To summarize, today NICE! Tomorrow real NICE! Thursday NICE but turning to not so nice. Swim advisory for today. So watch yourself if you are playing hooky from work. Not that you would do that. Just make the voice sound convincing and raspy when you call in. Then again if you have to provide a doctor’s note, you’re screwed. So get your butt into work like the rest of us you bum!
