SkyWarn 13 Forecast
SEASONABLE WARMTH RETURNS IN A GREAT FINALE TO THE WORK WEEK
Mostly sunny skies will be seen through the morning. In the afternoon there may be a scattering of showers that work through Eastern Minnesota, while we end up with a bit more cloud cover. Highs will again be near 70. Today an elongated surface trough will be sliding eastward towards Wisconsin. This system will be able to make some headway as the high moves a bit further eastward, we may see a few showers tonight but any shower amounts would be light. This weekend will carry low-end rain chances, but odds favor us staying dry. The large high pressure system will move from the Ohio Valley to the east coast during this time, while a wavy front sits to our south. The northwest side of the surface high looks to remain intact over the state and should keep us dry, though we will have to still watch this as some forecast models bring some of the shower activity farther north. Bottom line is the weekend will largely be dry, with any rain chance remain scattered and on the low side. It should be cloudier overall however, which would keep our afternoon’s in the 60′s.
Next week the upper levels favor further warming as the jet stream lifts back more to the north towards the Canadian border. A nearly stalled out front will remain to our south which we will have to watch for any northward shifts, but it appears dry weather will continue to win out through early next week before possibly moving up into the area by next Wednesday. As the airmass continues to warm, we are looking at a stretch of days topping well into the 70s and even the low 80s.
