A cold front and its associated rain showers are now mostly past KELOLAND. We’ll still have plenty of early stratus clouds and it’s going to be another cool day. There are some leftover stray showers in Minnesota and Iowa and some marginal action in the Black Hills. This should all leave early. Most of our tools are holding onto gray clouds through morning and early afternoon. That comes despite the calmer air behind this system. Skies are clearing by Minot, ND, but that’s pretty far away. Many of us will have a noticeably strong breeze and that will make it feel cooler.
This evening, we DO expect clearer skies and calmer winds. It’s a typical setup for fog in the northeast, though. There’s too much low-level moisture trapped for nothing to happen. If fog doesn’t form east of Aberdeen, low-level stratus probably will. This is most likely in areas that saw heavy rain yesterday, and that extends well into Minnesota.
Tomorrow will be just a touch warmer. Most won’t notice the difference itself, though the extra sunshine may make it feel warmer. We will warm up through Wednesday. That should EASILY be the warmest day of the coming week as the heat builds in from the West Coast. We’ll also be tracking a chance of rain for the southern counties late Monday night through Tuesday. There’s also a big system rolling through Canada midweek. That has a wintertime look to it but should mainly stay north.
