Weather: Bright Skies for Spring Weekend

By Michael J. Ring
EDITOR IN CHIEF -- If you are planning to attend one of the upcoming Spring Weekend activities, the weather should cooperate.

A system of high pressure is firmly entrenched in the region, bringing sunny skies and seasonable temperatures. No, we won’t reach 85°F (29°C) like we did last Sunday, but the weather will nonetheless be pleasant for activities such as Kresge Kickback and the Odyssey Ball.

Around the nation, the major weather headline continues to be flooding in the Midwest. Yesterday the flood crest on the Mississippi River reached Illinois. However, damage there was much less severe compared to the flooding seen in Davenport, Iowa earlier in the week.

Weekend Outlook

Today: Mostly sunny. High of 68°F (20°C).

Tonight: Clear and cool. Low of 43°F (6°C).
