Areas of dense fog will once again be an issue for the morning commute across southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa. A dense fog advisory is in effect until 9am for many of our eastern counties along and west of I-35. We’ll see partly sunny skies throughout the midday with afternoon highs in the mid 70s. Late afternoon and evening could see a slight chance for isolated thunderstorms, a few could become strong or maybe even severe. Strong to damaging winds and some hail will be the main threats, but if conditions develop correctly, cannot rule out an isolated tornado. Storms are not looking to be widespread, more pop up in nature, so make sure to stay weather aware later today!
After sunset, scattered showers will be possible across our area into the early overnight with mostly cloudy skies. Overnight lows will fall back into the upper 50s with a light northwest wind at 5-10 mph.
More clouds than sun are likely for Wednesday as we enjoy our first dry day of the midweek thanks to high pressure moving into the region. Afternoon highs will be seasonably cool in the lower 70s. Sunny skies will be a welcomed sight on Thursday with highs in the mid 70s.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible for Friday with highs in the upper 70s. Temperatures will make a return into the lower 80s for the weekend with mostly to partly sunny skies. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday could see a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms.
