After days and days of blue sky and sunshine, clouds have been much more prevalent today, and though it has stayed dry, the clouds have kept it a bit cooler as we finish out this weekend. It will stay mostly cloudy tonight, but this will also help keep temperatures up, so after several nights with the threat for frost, that will not be the case tonight. Lows will be in the 40's.
A small area of high pressure will continue to hang on tomorrow, but with a weak front sliding across Minnesota, we look to remain in a situation where clouds will have the upper hand. There may be a bit of sun around on Monday, which may help get those temperatures at least back into the lower 60's. The front will be making slow progress into the state overnight and on Tuesday. It won't bring any precipitation, but will continue to produce some extra clouds. Tuesday currently looks like a partly sunny day and it should be just a touch warmer before the front passes, with highs in the mid 60's.
High pressure then quickly builds in on Wednesday with a mostly sunny sky and highs in the seasonable mid 60's. After a several day stretch of dry weather, we are looking at the next storm system arriving from the Northern Plains Wednesday night into Thursday. The timing may change a bit as we get closer to the event, but right now rain looks to arrive for the overnight hour, lasting into at least the first half of Thursday. Highs will be in the low to mid 60's. Drier air will then begin to take hold, with another high pressure system moving in overnight and into Friday. This should bring a nice finish to the work week, with the return of sunshine and highs in the lower 60's.
A first look at next weekend looks dry at this time, with clouds and sunshine and highs remaining in the 60's.
- 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.
