We managed a reasonably dry day today, although we did have some rain showers sprinkled across the area this afternoon. This cool, fall-like air mass should begin to show signs of trending back towards summer for the end of this week, but true summer heat will remain elusive. Along with slightly warmer temperatures, we’ll also be trending back towards a more active weather pattern by this weekend.
Skies clear for tonight setting the stage for a sunshine filled day for Thursday! With high pressure overhead, expect to see mainly sunny skies for Thursday along with lighter winds and temperatures edging into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Our next storm system will move back into the Upper Midwest by Friday bringing at least a slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm to southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa during the day on Friday. The good news is that it shouldn’t be a washout on Friday as temperatures return to the mid 70s.
All eyes turn to this Father’s Day weekend and perhaps some more wet weather as the storm track parks itself over Minnesota. While we will see the chance for showers and thunderstorms for both Saturday and Sunday, I think we should manage several hours of dry weather throughout the weekend with high temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 70s.
