Today's Weather: Overcast

By Lisa White in News on Jul 1, 2015 1:30PM

We've got a cool overcast day ahead of us to kick off the start of July and continue the trend of a more mild summer. Currently we're resting along the southern edge of a Canadian-sourced high pressure that is north of Lake Superior, so we can thank (or curse) our neighbors to the north for our current weather conditions. We'll have some sunshine pop up today but most of the area will be covered in clouds with highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Although today is considerably cooler, we will warm back up a bit before the weekend. Expect highs in the upper 70s and low 80s if you are grilling out for the 4th of July.
