We've been tracking a strong low-pressure system off to our west, and it will be approaching our region tomorrow. It is currently bringing heavy snow to Montana and Wyoming, and the threat for severe weather in Kansas and Oklahoma. The system's track will be to our northwest, which will put us in the warm sector of the weather-maker. This means that we won't be seeing any snowfall!
We will receive some scattered showers throughout the day on Wednesday, with an isolated thunderstorm possible. Our severe threat is low, but winds will be strong out of the south at 10-20 mph, with gusts near 45 mph possible.
Rain accumulations will be highest for towns to the west of I-35. Southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa will likely see between a tenth and a quarter inch by Wednesday evening. Skies should begin to clear by 8 pm, which will allow temperatures to drop quickly overnight!
High temperatures will be cooling down as well, low 60s are likely on Thursday with even cooler temps in the 50s on Friday. Temperatures will slowly warm through the weekend but overall we'll be keeping the seasonable temperatures through early next week.
