7 Day Forecast 7 Day Forecast

 

Just a brief touch of sunshine yesterday was enough to boost our temperature up to 71, which is right on the average for this time of the year.  We're blowing by that number this afternoon, with our eyes and thermometers set on the 80s and 90s for the rest of this week and into the coming holiday weekend.  We could still use a little moisture for our lawns and gardens, and it looks as though we'll get some.  We're nearly an inch below average for the month, but showers and thunderstorms are expected to break out as early as late tonight, with a better chance on Wednesday.  With more instability in the atmosphere, we actually have at least a small chance for rain nearly every day the rest of the week.  
 
The Outlook
A weak cool front is scheduled to move into the Dakotas again late Friday, which could cause a few strong thunderstorms to form Friday night and early Saturday out to our west.  That should help heat build over Minnesota Saturday and Sunday, which could produce the first 90s of the season for us.  Memorial Day is also looking hot and dry at this point, with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s.  Next Tuesday looks warm, with a stronger cool front expected on Wednesday of next week.
 
The Winds
The winds should be southeasterly at 5 mph tonight and southeasterly at 5-10 mph on Wednesday.
