LATEST FORECAST DISCUSSION
Meteorologist: Monica Ott
High pressure will be building in the northern Great Plains leading to some nice weather for us through the middle of the week. Tuesday will feature a mostly sunny sky with temperatures in the low to mid 70s along with lower humidity. Winds will be breezy at times from the northwest around 10 to 15 miles per hour with gusts up to 25 miles per hour in spots. A great kite flying day or one to enjoy the lower humidity and spend some time outdoors. It may be a little cool at times at the pool so make sure to bring some extra dry clothes (and maybe an extra nice warm towel) if you'll be enjoying the water today.
Wednesday will be nice as well... a bit cooler possibly, with highs closer to 70. There will still be plenty of bright sunshine across the state. A quick moving system may sweep through late Wednesday and into the overnight hours. This will bring some light rain into the area overnight but any wet weather should exit by early Thursday. A few extra clouds my pop up Friday as winds shift to the southeast bringing in more moisture but for now any chance at significant rain looks low. Highs will still be below average for the final day of the work week, in the low 70s. During this cooler stretch some cooler nights can be expected as well. Many locations could see lows in the 40s.
A slightly better chance for showers and storms will come this weekend as the next low begins to takes shape to our west. Even so, there doesn't appear to be a major rain event for either Saturday or Sunday. The models do favor the second half of the weekend more but that's still a ways off... a lot can change between now and then. Regardless, temperatures look to remain below average during this time as highs stay in the 70s.
Have a great Tuesday!
