      Changes to the forecast arrive this weekend with scattered showers become more widespread Saturday morning. This initial round will move out midday and there likely will be a several hour break in the afternoon with just a few widely scattered showers possible. The best chances for rain are in the evening and overnight when the cold front moves through which could include some thunderstorms. While the risk of severe weather is low, there is a chance a few of these storms could produce some strong wind gusts further to our south. Temperatures likely in the upper 60s Saturday then lower 60s on Sunday even though the sky will be clearing after that front moves out early morning. Another cold front is expected Monday night with a chance for showers, then a few sprinkles are possible much of the day Tuesday, with some flurries possibly mixing in Tuesday morning, but won't be anything of significance. Chilly fall air looks to stick around into next weekend and beyond. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer
