It was an active afternoon of severe weather in southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa, with multiple tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings. Lingering showers and non-severe thunderstorms are possible before 10 pm with clearing skies after midnight. A passing cold front will cool our temperatures overnight into the mid-50s with breezy southwest winds at 10-15 mph.
We finally get an extended break from the rain starting Friday with partly sunny skies and seasonably cool temperatures in the mid-60s. Temperatures warm back into the mid-70s for Saturday with plenty of sunshine. Overnight Saturday could see a chance for showers and thunderstorms with sunshine returning for Sunday.
The start of next week will best resemble summer rather than early fall with highs in the lower 80s and partly sunny skies. By Wednesday and Thursday, chances for showers and thunderstorms return to the region with temperatures in the upper 70s.
