The cloudy, cool weather experienced for most of Father’s Day is hanging around to start our work week as our weather pattern remains fairly active and unsettled. A disturbance west to our west is moving into the region today and will bring along some showers and a few thunderstorms for the afternoon and early evening hours. Severe weather won’t be a concern, however, with just a few brief showers are expected. If we’re lucky, we’ll see a few breaks of sunshine ahead of those late day showers, working with very light southwest winds to warm temperatures into the lower 70s.
The storm system producing our Monday rain chances will edge its way southward for Tuesday, keeping sparse rain chances in our area for locations south of Interstate 90, especially in northern Iowa. With limited sunshine tomorrow, high temperatures will be in the lower 70s and just a hint of a northwest breeze.
High pressure will settle in for Wednesday, providing us with our best chance of a completely rain free day and enough sunshine to warm temperatures into the mid 70s.
There will be slight chances of late day showers by Thursday and Friday as a larger storm system approaches from the west and high temperatures will be in the mid 70s before that system takes center stage locally for the weekend, bringing more widespread showers and thunderstorms, especially for Saturday. The first weekend in astronomical summer will also feel a bit warmer and more humid with high temperatures in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.
