A Blustery and cool Wednesday
A weak storm system is moving through the region today on the heels of heavy rain producing Tropical Depression Cristobal, but bringing much lighter rain to our local area. We'll have occasional light rain until 4:00 this afternoon when clouds will begin to break up from west to east, allowing the early June sun to warm our temperatures a bit. Look for afternoon high temperature in the mid and upper 60s, feeling perhaps a little cooler than that thanks to gusty northwest winds. Rainfall totals will be less than one-quarter inch area-wide, a far cry from the one to five inches we experienced Tuesday.
Breezy and warm Thursday
Warm sunshine and seasonable temperatures will make for a pleasant Thursday as high pressure approaches from the west. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s with west winds occasionally reaching 25 miles per hour.
Cool weekend sunshine
A cold front will swing through the Upper Mississippi Valley late Thursday night, bringing a reinforcing shot of crisp, cool, dry air to the area to round out the workweek.We'll have mostly sunny skies for Friday with a cool north breeze and afternoon high temperatures in the mid 70s. Saturday looks slightly cooler than that as we wake up the to lower 50s in the morning and only make it to the lower 70s for afternoon high temperatures. Sunday will feature sunshine and afternoon readings in the mid 70s.
Warmer, few rain chances next week
Warmer air will build back into the region early next week with plenty of sunshine in store for our area. There will be small chances for showers and thunderstorms early in the week as a storm system grazes the area to the northwest. Otherwise, look for sunshine and a slow warming trend that will carry us from the upper 70s to the mid 80s over the course of the workweek.
