Weather for October 11-17, 2017
High pressure will bring mostly clear skies to the Valley Wednesday through Friday. Clouds increase Saturday as high pressure moves east and a cold front slides across the region from the northwest bringing a chance for a few showers Saturday afternoon into the evening. Partly cloudy skies Saturday night give way to increasing clouds as a low pressure system moves east from the Great Lakes with another round of showers/rain Sunday afternoon into Monday. Showers taper off with clearing skies overnight Monday into Tuesday as high pressure builds into the region with partly cloudy skies Tuesday.
