Nice weather is in the forecast for today and it will not be too bad for the weekend. You might have to dodge a brief shower or two on Saturday, then it looks like warmer weather will develop going into early next week.
Today: Mostly sunny early, then more clouds developing through the afternoon.
High: 69 Wind: SW 10-15
Tonight: Mostly cloudy with a chance of a light shower or sprinkle late.
Low: 47 Wind: South around 5
Saturday: Partly or mostly cloudy with a chance of scattered light showers.
High: 65 Wind: South 10-15
If you liked yesterday, you will enjoy the weather once again for today. We will start out with some sun, then the clouds will increase a bit for the afternoon. High temps should rise into the upper 60s and the wind will be out of the southwest at 10-15 mph.
A weak trough of low pressure will move in for tonight and cross our area on Saturday. This means more clouds and a chance of rain. It will mainly be sprinkles late tonight and then tomorrow there will be a few light showers scattered about. It will not be a “rainy” day but the brief showers could be a nuisance for your outdoor activities. Temperatures will be a little cooler with highs in the low to mid 60s. Winds will be out of the south.
On Sunday there is still a slight chance a sprinkle or shower could pop up, but conditions will be better than Saturday for outdoor activities. There should be a few more breaks of sun and highs around 70.
Next week will feel more like Summer. On Monday and Tuesday, we will have a good amount of sunshine and highs in the 70s. On Wednesday the clouds will increase a bit but the temperatures should still reach the 70s in the afternoon. A southerly wind flow with more moisture will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday night and this chance will continue off-and-on for Thursday and Friday. Even with more clouds in the sky, highs on Thursday and Friday should be in the 70s.

Have an fine Friday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, Morning Update, 14-May-2021
On this date in weather history: 1898 - A severe thunderstorm, with some hailstones up to 9.5 inches in circumference, pounded a four mile wide path across Kansas City MO. South-facing windows were broken in nearly every house in central and eastern parts of the city, and several persons were injured. An even larger hailstone was thought to have been found, but it turned out to be a chunk of ice tossed out the window of a building by a prankster.
