Partly cloudy skies in eastern KELOLAND will eventually give way to clear skies this evening and tonight. Temperatures will fall to the low to middle fifties tonight as the breezy northwest winds from this afternoon become light.
Dry conditions will continue Wednesday with temperatures a tad warmer than today. Highs will reach the low to middle eighties, but I wouldn’t be surprised if areas of Minnesota remain in the seventies. Winds will be light and slowly favor a southeast direction.
The southeast winds will continue Thursday, but they will increase throughout the day. It will most likely end up being a breezy afternoon with gusts near thirty miles per hour. The winds will help warm the temperatures to the middle eighties and low nineties. Along with the warmer air, the humidity will also be higher. We’ll interact with the increase of moisture late in the day Thursday and Thursday night. Some rain will linger east of Interstate 29 on Friday but temperatures and humidity will remain high.
The weekend will feature hit and miss showers and storms with highs in the eighties. Much cooler air will move through the upper plains next week. Though timing details need to be worked out, expect highs at least ten to fifteen degrees cooler than average. That means widespread sixties and seventies will be likely next week.
