SkyWarn 13 Forecast
SUNSHINE AND SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES TO KICK OFF THE WORK WEEK
As high pressure has built in to our northwest overnight, we have enjoyed clear conditions throughout the night, making for a bit of a cooler start to the morning. However, this will give way to plenty of sunshine and seasonal temperatures later this afternoon as we can expect to top out in the upper 60s and low 70s. A tightening pressure gradient will increase our winds throughout the afternoon, with gusts occasionally reaching 25 miles per hour at times. Otherwise, it will be great May weather to kick off the workweek. Mainly clear conditions will take us through the evening, opening up the door for slightly chilly temperatures heading our way later.
The night will start off clear but clouds will gradually start to increase, out ahead of the next strung out front with a few low pressure systems in the Northern Plains. Moisture with this system is expected to slide to the east and southeast into tomorrow. There are questions as to how far north showers may come on Tuesday, but at this time we will carry at least a small chance to see a few of these arrive Tuesday afternoon. Clouds may be mixed with some sunshine at times with highs again in the upper 60s. The same system is still expected to be close enough to our area on Wednesday to keep a shower or two in the forecast, but again it’s looking to be more dry than wet. The rest of the week we will begin to see a trough deepen well out the the west. In response, some ridging will develop closer to us, as the next low pressure system arrives in the Plains. As of now the day is looking largely dry, with better chances to see showers and storms to the north and south. We should get into some of this activity Thursday night. It will be a warmer day as we rise back into the 70s. By Friday this entire system will be pushing out to the northeast, bringing an end to any lingering shower chances while cooler air begins to arrive. The upper trough will slide into the region, coming with unseasonably cool and dry air to start the weekend. Sunshine and clouds will dominate, but with highs only forecast to be in the 50s and 60s, they may factor into any outdoor plans.
