Flood Warning: When rivers will crest and how high the water will get

We’re starting off our Friday morning with some cloud cover and a few sprinkles east of the Mississippi River. Temperatures this morning are in the lower 60s and upper 50s for most of our hometowns. Because we won’t see much sunshine, temperatures won’t be warming up too much… highs this afternoon will only be in the mid 60s. A few showers and sprinkles will linger into the afternoon and evening as well. Friday Night Football games should remain dry for the most part, with temperatures this evening in the low 60s. Expect the clouds to stay with us this evening and overnight tonight.

We’ll wake up to more cloud cover on Saturday with very similar weather. Temperatures in the morning will be in the upper 50s, and they’ll slowly creep into the mid 60s by the afternoon. Once again, a few showers aren’t out of the question on Saturday, but most of us will remain dry. Pesky cloud cover will remain for the morning and afternoon.

By Sunday, the sky will begin to clear, and we’ll start to see that sunshine! Temperatures will also be warmer during the afternoon, with highs in the low to mid 70s. Talk about a great way to wrap up the weekend!
