Any rain today will be light

Good morning! An upper trough is going to push over the region today, but moisture return ahead of it has been meager. Thus, our best chance of rain will be this morning and west of Highway 65. We could see a few spotty showers elsewhere into the afternoon, but amounts will be light. Clouds will be widespread even if you don't get rain at your house, so highs will be limited to the upper 60s for most. A partial solar eclipse will occur today from 4:00 pm to sunset, but my hunch is clouds will linger too long for many of us to see it. There is an outside chance we clear in time particularly over the western part of the region, so plan to be out and watch for it. Once skies clear tonight we could see some dense fog in spots. Friday will bring sun back and highs in the 70s. I still think the weekend will be very warm and may approach record highs. Our next chance of rain will arrive Tuesday.
