A brighter and drier forecast for the weekend. We'll contend with partly to mostly cloudy skies through much of the morning, but the clouds will decrease through the afternoon as high pressure builds over the area. Temperatures for many areas should return to more seasonable levels. You will also notice a bit of mugginess in the area for Saturday. It will only get more sticky and humid as the weekend goes on, and it will continue to be humid through next week.
Mostly sunny and above average on Sunday with highs in the 80s! It looks like a great day for outdoor activities, especially, if you'll be up at the lake or the cabin. Sunday will begin a long stretch of very warm and humid weather for the region. We are by no means done with summer yet!
Mostly sunny and warm on Monday and Tuesday with highs in the 80s. A weak disturbance could bring some added clouds into the area Tuesday into Wednesday. Right now it's looking dry for most of us, but we can't totally out-rule a stray shower or thunderstorms. The better chances for that appear to be to the west in Minnesota and far northwest Wisconsin.
The heat continues to build as the week goes on. Thursday and Friday will be the hottest days with highs around 90°. That's well above average for the start of September. Next week is shaping up to be our longest stretch of summer heat and humidity of the whole season.
- Federal meteorologists say the current El Nino is already the second strongest on record for this time of year and could be one of the most potent weather changers of the past 65 years.
