Sunday in KELOLAND had thick clouds parked over the southeast quarter. This kept temperatures in the 50s to near 60. Central and northern KELOLAND had sunshine, which allowed temperatures to warm to the 60s to low 70s! The west had some higher level clouds which blocked some of the sun’s energy so afternoon temperatures have warmed to the upper 50s to lower 60s.
Southeast KELOLAND started the day off with some isolated showers but those faded out this morning. But looking at the radar, some rain showers have developed in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa and they are headed north. So I’ve included a chance for scattered light rain for those in Iowa and Minnesota tonight into tomorrow. Otherwise, mostly clear to partly cloudy skies are expected tonight with lows dipping into the 40s.
Monday will have decreasing clouds, for those that start the day off with clouds, with highs at or above average for this time of year. The southeast will have highs in the upper 60s to near 70 while the rest of KELOLAND bounces into the 70s.
A slow moving, upper level trough will bring very warm temperatures this week. Highs will warm to the upper 70s to upper 80s starting Tuesday with temps like that repeating into the weekend. And as the upper level trough digs through the Midwest, we’ll have near daily chances for scattered, popup, thunderstorms starting late Tuesday and ending Friday.
