It was a rather gray day across our region, but at least we avoided any rain chances. Cloudy skies will remain for tonight with overnight lows on the mild side in the mid 60s and a light northeast wind at 3-8 mph. Areas of fog development are possible overnight and looks to last into Monday morning.
Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are likely for Monday with the bulk of the rain activity south of I-90, primarily in northeastern Iowa. Heavy rain and lightning will be the main concerns with the potential of up to an inch of rain in northeast Iowa. Closer to Rochester, totals will range from a tent to a quarter of an inch. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s. Some sunshine is possible for Tuesday with highs in the mid 70s and a slight chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.
High pressure is expected to move into the region for the midweek, following the passing of a cold front early Wednesday. Expect seasonably cool temperatures on Wednesday as highs look to only manage the lower 70s with partly sunny skies. Thursday will feature mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70s.
Some summertime heat looks to move back into the region for the weekend as afternoon temperatures hover near 80 degrees on Friday and into the low to mid 80s for Saturday and Sunday. Friday and Saturday could see a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon with sunny skies more promising for Sunday.
